LISTEN HERE

I've been wondering about the track "I Don't Know". On January 12th, 1967 Dennis produced a session for a song of his with this title. According to Mr. Badman's research the line-up would have been this:
Bruce Johnston - keyboards
Carol Kaye - bass guitar
Tommy Morgan - harmonica
Bill Pitman - guitar
Lyle Ritz - upright bass
Carl Wilson - guitar
Dennis Wilson - drums

And what I hear on this recording are guitars, bass and drums (sounding much more like Hal Blaine to these ears). No harmonica or upright bass. So what in the hell is this? Is this even a BB production? Well...simply..."I don't know".....

Update: A very wise man had this to say:
OK - "I Don't Know" is the instrumental track to Bruce & Terry's "Dont Run Away", recorded 2/15/1966 at Columbia
... and "New orleans" is actually "New England Waltz", a Love You outtake recorded March 1977.

So there you have it then!
