I usually listen to the mono version.

The first time the album hit hard I had listened in stereo.

Pet Sounds DCC version... (on weed, man!)  There is no other way to hear it.

If I can't enjoy something sober then I view that music as "bad".

Of course being high highlights things and you lapse into the groove with ease, but having to be stoned to like it isn't cool.

I rarely listen to Pet Sounds with others. Once was in the car one time with my two friends.. I popped it in and we were all singing along to Wouldn't It Be Nice, my two friends singing the lead and me doing the backing vocals, having a grand old time. Then it gets to the fadeout and my friend turns the radio on and says, "Okay, that was the only Beach Boys song I like."

Another was a few days before me and my girlfriend broke up, and we knew our relationship was failing.. we're lying on her bed and she says "Put in a CD". Somehow forgetting the first song, I put in Pet Sounds, which I had given to her for Christmas and she hadn't yet listened to in full. So I put it in and lay back on the bed.. Wouldn't It Be Nice comes on and we both erupt into tears. Less than a minute into the song, I rip the plug out of the wall.

So, yeah, alone in the dark for me, too. When I'm at my beach house I look out my window and see the streetlights and the buildings and the ocean horizon.. it's an image I've visually connected with Pet Sounds.

I enjoy it no matter what state of mind I'm in.  I really meant that the DCC version is the best, and only way to hear it, for me...  listening to it while "under the influence" just enhances it.

this album really shows how the beach boys were just a completly different type of band than any category you would want to throw them into with the other artists of that time. its not really oldies or classic rock or anything, its truly unique. this is the best thing they did, but i think maybe only cause smile wasnt released, sorry.

Didn't the Today album accomplish that? The second side?

The Beach Boys proved themself to be more than that meets the eye many times. Consider the song, "Surfer Girl". Mention this to anybody and they'll laugh. They don't understand what's going on with those harmonies and the music which set those guys aside from every other band so early on.

Pet Sounds was just the album which shoved that fact to the listener.

Not feeding anyone. Just engaging in intelligent discussion.

helped bring me out of my shell.

i first bought a Capitol cassette of Ps. circa 1989, thinking from the summer dreams tv bio pic
it was going to be all round psychedelic, like hendrix.

what i heard from wouldnt it, all the way to caroline no......i cannot explain too accurately.

it was a carol of broque pop and carnival magic trip and teenge longing. just what i needed, at 19 yrs old.

I have enjoyed your book since I picked it up 2 weeks ago.  I have one question for you though...in the prologue to the Pet Sounds song discussion, you mention that Brian, in his quest for perfection, actually re-did alot of the group vocals himself, in effect wiping the group and making it a solo performance in spots.  You then state that a listen to the box set vox only disc plays this out.

While it is obvious that Don't Talk and Caroline No are straight solo efforts, I am wondering what vocals you are talking about. Could it be, my guess, I Just Wasn't Made For These Times and/or You Still Believe In Me? To my ear, Wouldn't It Be Nice is clearly the Beach Boy blend, as are the vox on I'm Waiting For The Day, God Only Knows, and Sloop.

I appreciate your elaboration...and your book.

Yes, I have that similiar question.  I bought his book last week and read it in two days.  Unfortunately due to the amount of space he had to cram all this information in, there's very little chance of ellaboration or examples given for claims like this.  I wish the book were double the length, at least, just to flesh out some of the stuff he says.  Some of the writing in the Christmas section was confusing.

"IJWMFTT" is almost a BW solo vocal effort - there are seven tracks of vocals, and all but one are all Brian.

Know what you mean - I had a limit to adhere to, or so I was told, so in the end the equivalent of four pages of text were taken out. So, when I saw the completed book, I wasn't AT ALL happy with the amount of blank paper scattered throughout. At a rough estimate, it totals something like ten full pages.  Angry

At some time in the indefinite future I'm going to explore the possibility of liscensing the text back from Omnibus, adding to and expanding it, and publishing it privately, or maybe as an eBook.

But don't  hold your breath...

All but two, and keep in mind that those are full group vocals.

The track sheets show all Brian except "Group".

This I suppose could mean a group of B. Wilson's though I better think it to be the Beach Boys.

Well, I've ordered a copy.  I'll be happy to share my thoughts once it arrives.  In the meantime, I'd love to hear from anyone out there who has one already.

I once read a review on amazon from a kid who was reviewing some albums for his Dad. I assume he never listened to PS because he slagged it off as fruity pet sounds from goats and llama's and the like.
