Originally released in 1966, this album was produced by Murry Wilson.
After the Beach Boys fired him as their manager, Murry put together The Sunrays, in an attempt to show that he was the driving force behind the Beach Boys success. Not only did he manage/produce the group, he wrote and co-wrote several song for them as well. After a few minor hits, The Sunrays only lasted about two years.

While the songs here do use some really close harmonies, they don't really have that Beach Boy sound. There are a few exceptions though, I Live For The Sun is the most Beach Boy sounding song. It alone makes this disc worth having.

Murry Wilson was a real music lover and frustrated producer. I wouldn't necessarily assume sinister motives for Andrea. Still this album clearly demonstrates who the true talent behind the Beach Boys was, and it wasn't Murry. It was Carl Wilson who introduced The Renegades to Murry and suggested a recording project. Murry decided that The Renegades didn't convey the right image and changed the name to The Sunrays. Murry and Audrey deserve credit for encouraging and supporting the boys' music in a big way early on. The Beach Boys may have never made it without him.

The problem with this album is not the Sunrays, but Murry. The songs are awful. It sounds sort of like The Four Seasons led by Lawrence Welk trying to do The Beach Boys. The Sunrays did some excellent stuff before (raw and lively surf music) and after Andrea. Still because of Murry's involvement, Andrea is an interesting historical document.

There is a Sunrays album in print: The Sunrays - 27 Classic Tracks, The Very Best of The Tower Recordings. It has all the "Andrea" songs, plus some alternate versions and additional songs. Plus there's an excellent OOP 3 disc Box Set (Vintage Rays) covering The Renegades/Sunrays recording history.
