Apropos of nothing - one of my favorite albums ever turns 50 today. It'll probably mean nothing to a lot of you, but if you're of a certain ago...

Happy Anniversary to Brian Wilson's masterpiece....

 

 

 

Pet Sounds 


All four members of The Beatles stated that The Beach Boys Pet Sounds album had a major influence on them and the making of their 1967 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. But the two groups were playing a public game of cat and mouse. On hearing The Beatles Rubber Soul album, Beach Boy Brian Wilson proclaimed he was going make ‘the greatest rock album ever made!' 

Released in May 1966, Pet Sounds is now regarded as the masterpiece of composer-producer Brian Wilson, and is often hailed as one of the best and most influential albums in pop music. 

To confirm this, Pet Sounds has been widely ranked as one of the most influential records ever released and has been ranked at #1 in several music magazines lists of greatest albums of all time, including New Musical Express, The Times and Mojo Magazine. In 2003, it was ranked #2 in Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list, (Sgt. Pepper's came first). 

The album was created several months after Brian Wilson had quit touring with the band in order to focus his attention on writing and recording. In it, he wove elaborate layers of vocal harmonies, and unconventional instruments such as bicycle bells, dog whistles, buzzing organs, harpsichords, flutes, Electro-Theremin, Hawaiian-sounding string instruments, Coca-Cola cans and barking dogs, (Wilson's own dog Banana is featured), along with the more usual keyboards and guitars. Wilson essentially made Pet Sounds without the rest of the band, using them only to flesh out the vocal arrangements.
