A Duophonic Pet Sounds on CD would certainly be.. unique.

Seeing as how it was the stereo Pet Sounds before the stereo Pet Sounds, I was really excited about it and pre-ordered it through cdUniverse. A couple places said the release was cancelled by Toshiba EMI, and cdUniverse told me the order was backordered, and that they had no other information as to when the CD might be released, if ever. Needless to say, I was tremendously disappointed.

Yeah. Why waste our time with Mono and Stereo? Duophonic is the way to go. Gimme da mud! I love it. Sell me a defaced copy of the Mona Lisa and a slightly damaged lava lamp right along with it. Alright. Instead of buying a CD of a bad sounding record, why not just buy the record itself, which will surely be more collectible? 20 years of scientific and technological effort made to make CDs sound good and these people want to resurrect the most heinous idea ever created by some those record executives. Iím surprise Mark Linett wasnít called in for this one. It should be included on the 40th Anniversary Set.

They're just jumping on the Beatles "Capitol Albums" bandwagon...

Nobody's expecting to come out and replace the CD standard of the album. It's not even something you'd find in a local store. It's release wouldn't hurt anyone. Yeah, I think it would be something better left for an exhaustive box set that looks to include everything available on the album, but that's not happening anytime soon. Certainly I wouldn't buy it for sound.....that's why I have the DCC issue and the DVD-audio issue. I'd buy it to hear a different version of the album. Yeah, I can get it used on vinyl, but I don't listen to vinyl ( Shocked) so this would be the only way for me to hear it. Nobody who would buy it would be buying without having already heard the album both in mono and new stereo, so it's not going to ruin anyone's perception of the album. And nobody's forcing anyone to buy anything.

It's handy to have it, if only for comparative purposes. I'll be getting it.

The Beatles' Capitol albums re-issues do make a good comparison.

Although few will intellectually think that they are a "good" way to present the music on CD anyone who grew up listening to them when originally getting hooked on the Beatles or Beach Boys has the potential for a serious, positive deep-nostalgia-emotional response to them that can't be recreated otherwise.

People who didn't grow up with that have the potential for a deep, nausea-centered response that is equally understandable. 

I grew up listening to the Duophony version of Pet Sounds on Capitol then the mono version on Reprise paired with Carl and the Passions So Rough (T). The CD stereo remaster is what I now prefer intellectually, but I may want the Duophony on CD anyway.
