Releases How To Play The Electric Bass
Changes instrument to bass after filling in on Capitol Records session
Invited to play guitar on Sam Cooke's "Summertime"
Kaye claims to have played guitar on the Beach Boys' 1963 number one "Surf City." However, although a session list compiled by Craig Slowinski for The Smile Sessions box-set liner notes reveals that she unquestionably played on several sessions for the song, none of those recordings made the final edit as released on the single.
Kaye quit her session work on Frank Zappa's second album, Absolutely Free, after objecting to some of its lyrics.
