Pet sounds

Last month I wrote about Brian Wilson and his masterwork “Pet Sounds” on the occasion of Wilson’s sixty-first birthday. I mentioned that “Pet Sounds” had served as an inspiration to the Beatles in creating “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” I should also have mentioned that Wilson in turn has credited the Beatles’ “Revolver” as his inspiration in creating “Pet Sounds.” Today’s Minneapolis Star Tribune has a feature on the release of “Pet Sounds” in the new DVD-Audio format: “Surround sound captures ‘Pet Sounds.'”
This photo shows the Beach Boys (minus Dennis Wilson) on their photo shoot for the cover of the “Pet Sounds” album.
