The Beach Boys release California Saga: California on their 1973 album Holland. Written by Al Jardine the song Peaks at no. 84 in Billboard and no. 37 in the UK. In discussing Ricky Fataar’s contribution to this song and the band, Al Jardine says:
Ricky is a fabulous percussionist, drummer, tarp set player. He’s also a multi-instrumentalist. He played flute and steel guitar on the trilogy, California Saga so he did all those effects. He added a little musical dimension to the band.
