Meticulously mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the best sources available, plated and pressed at QRP, and housed in an "old style" Stoughton tip-on jacket, Analogue Productions' 200g stereo vinyl LP reissue of Pet Sounds presents the legendary 1966 record in audiophile-caliber stereo
The album is "psychedelic" only because of its eclectic mix of acoustic and electric instruments, sound effects and musical structures that roam from Martin Denny exotica to rock to jazzyou name it.
Wilson spent almost a half-million 2016 dollars producing the record to his definition of musical and sonic perfection,
This new one from "Analogue Productions was overall the very best,
When Pet Sounds was released May 16, 1966 its reception was mixed. The 11th album for the already popular group garnered little critical and commercial success in the States, while in England it was hailed by the music press and hit the number 2 spot on the Top 40 charts. One Mr. Paul McCartney was so impressed with it the album became the main influence on his band's next record, a little thing called Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
While it may be a little hard to imagine today, the radical arrangements, un-rock-like orchestrations, and wildly inventive production coupled with subject matter that was less cheery and more introspective than your average pop album of the day, was a lot to take in for some who were just looking for the next fun surf track to dance to down at the beach shack. However Pet Sounds paved the way for the idea that a rock album could be more than a mere collection of singles, but a cohesive piece of art. Brian Wilson's production on the album would open up creative possibilities we take for granted now, would influence all kinds of musical genres, and would bring the concept of production into the mainstream consciousness as an essential part of an album.
Often regarded as the masterpiece of composer-producer Brian Wilson, it has been hailed as one of the best and most influential albums in popular music. In 1995, nearly thirty years after its release, a panel of top musicians, songwriters and producers assembled by MOJO magazine voted it "The Greatest Album Ever Made." In 1998 Q magazine readers voted it the 31st greatest album of all time; critics of German magazine Spex voted it the best album of the 20th Century; in 2003 the TV network VH1 placed it at #3. It also placed #2 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. In 2004, it was one of 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.
Essentially a solo project for Brian Wilson, Pet Sounds was created after he had quit touring with the band in order to focus his attention on writing and recording. In it, he wove elaborate layers of beautiful "Beach Boys" harmonies, coupled with sound effects and unconventional instruments such as bicycle bells, buzzing organs, harpsichords, flutes, the theremin, and even dog whistles, along with the more usual keyboards and guitars.
Ranked #2 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, the groundbreaking Pet Sounds (1966) is The Beach Boys' most acclaimed album and one of the most influential pop records in history. Landmark songwriting ("Wouldn't It Be Nice," "God Only Knows," "Caroline No," "Sloop John B"), incredible vocal harmonies and majestic arrangements coalesce to form a rich collage of sound that overflows with artistic depth and pure emotion.

The Beach Boys - God Only Knows
(Brian sings lead)
Brian Wilson originally intended to sing lead vocal on 'God Only Knows' but in the end he sacrificed the lead vocal to his brother Carl: "Well, I thought I was gonna do it. As the song progressed, I said, 'Hey, I feel kind of natural doing this.' But when we completed creating the song, I said my brother Carl will probably be able to impart the message better than I could, so I sacrificed that one. But he had a good time singing it."
The Beach Boys Wouldn't It Be Nice )
Love this tune... makes me feel like summer. beautiful harmonies
Beach Boys - Sloop John B
I really like this video. It's funny, interesting, well balanced between song and site. Apparently Brian was there, but he was in the studio checking out on the group's harmony, because I didn't see him on stage. By the way Al Jardine went solo when Carl died. He formed the group Beach Boy and Friends, for which M. Love took him to court. He got to keep the name. His son's in the group as well as other ex-BB's extras and in 2006 he teamed up with Brian for the 40th anniversary of Pet Sounds
