As a kid I remember being jealous of another family whose dad my dad worked with because they took a station wagon summer vacation to Southern California and went to Disneyland. That hurt. But going to Florida in 1968 made up for it (in part). I didn't visit California until 1988 and moved there about 7 years later.
Here's a Beach Boys song that features the Wrecking Crew and especially Carol Kaye on the electric bass:
The first mate he got drunk...remind me of a nursery rhyme my mother used to sing to me well before that song came out in 1966:
And broke in the Captain's trunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don't you leave me alone, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up I wanna go home
The monkey he got drunk[ADDED] OK this is pretty cool:
He climbed the elephant's trunk
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees
And that was the end of the monk monk monk!
