The Beach Boys in The Teen Set Magazine
Webmaster's Note: The Teen Set was a magazine
published and distributed directly by Capitol Records for the sole
purpose of selling records and generating interest in their recording
artists. The magazine featured stories and photos of the musical
artists who recorded on the Capitol Records label and was a free give-away where Capitol Records were sold.
One of the main writers of the magazine was Earl Leaf (no relation to
Beach Boys liner notes writer David Leaf); Earl Leaf frequently
accompanied the Boys on tour and interviewed the Boys about their first
European tour on the track "Bull Session With The 'Big Daddy'" found on
The Beach Boys Today! album on Capitol.
