In letter form from the Beach Boys to Binder Entertainment, Hollywood, California, regarding "Binder Entertainment - 'Beach Boys: Endless Summer'".

('Company') and you, covering the lending of the services of the undersigned by Company to you. As an inducement to you to enter into the Lending Agreement and as a material part of the consideration moving to you for doing so, the undersigned hereby represents, warrants and agrees as follows...." Eight points are then listed relating to the Lending Agreement. At the end of the document, there are also lines for Alan Jardine, Mike Love and Brian Wilson to sign, all of which are blank. Endless Summer, a double compilation album of the Beach Boys' pre-Pet Sounds hits, was released by Capitol Records in the summer of 1974. The album soared to No. 1 on the Billboard album chart and remained on the chart for three years. The Beach Boys had released no new material from 1973-1976, and by the time the album was released, they found themselves considered an "oldies" band. In 1989, the Beach Boys released their studio album, Still Cruisin', which featured the title track and "Kokomo". In 1990, another compilation album, Summer Dreams, was released. That album rose to No. 2 on the British charts. Carl Dean Wilson (1946-1998) was the youngest of the three brothers who formed the original Beach Boys. Formed by brother Brian Wilson, the group also included brother Dennis, cousin Mike Love and college friend, Al Jardine. Their first song, "Surfin'", which captured the California scene, was released to popular reviews, and a string of hits, most written by Brian and Love, followed, including "California Girls", "Surfin' USA", "Surfer Girl", "Little Deuce Coupe", "Don't Worry Baby", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", "God Only Knows", "I Get Around", "Help Me, Rhonda" and "Good Vibrations". The group's lead guitarist, Carl became a strong vocalist, singing lead on such songs as "God Only Knows" and "Good Vibrations". When Brian retired from the stage in 1965, Carl became the leader of the group. Carl, who released two solo albums in the 1980s before reuniting with the Beach Boys, also produced records for other artists. Diagnosed with cancer in 1996, he continued to perform through the Beach Boys' 1997 summer tour. Lightly creased. Staple holes at upper left margin. Fine condition.
