The WRVR Sessions '65

Released on compact disc in 2004 by The Pier Group.

From CD insert:

On January 20, 1965 The Malibooz entered the studios of WRVR in New York City for their first professional recording session. Although they had made several "basement tapes," this was the first time they had been in a recording studio. Take a trip back in time and join John, Walt, Chris, Tom & Ace for these memorable sessions.

These recordings have not been remastered or retouched in any way.

Like Beach Access, this album was considered for a Grammy for "Best Album Package." The inserts are exact copies of the box of the original recording and the spine of the case contains a piece of actual recording tape (though not from the original master, obviously).

Goin' to Malibu - Listen to a sample! (sample approx. 1 min long, 596K)

3. Miserlou (instrumental)
