Andrea 45 by The Sunrays

When Murry Wilson, the father of Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson, was fired as their producer, he set out to prove that their success was due to his genius.

He became the manager of the The Sunrays. They actually were a very good surf band who had a couple of moderately successful hits.

Their most memorable song was “I Live For The Sun” but it was “Andrea” that charted the highest. Released Jan. 26, 1966, it climbeed to number 41 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart .

What the band really had going for it was the wonderful lead vocal of Rick Henn who should have gone on to stardom.
