Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The earliest CD I have is the Capital 1990 release. Actually mastered in December 1987 when the album was only a youthful 21 years old. David Leaf didn't know the future as in the liner notes he writes "For those of you already familiar with the emotional feat within, you will rejoice in the pristine CD audio that means we can stop buying copies of Pet Sounds to replace our worn-out disks.". Also the original CDs have Dr. Eugene Landy listed as the "Executive consultant of CD remastering". Also printed on the CD as Stereo. It wasn't - it was mono. I guess slip-ups occurred in the last millennium too.

Next up was the 30th anniversary in 1996 with the release of The Pet Sounds Sessions box set. Actually released in 1997. A 4 CD juggernaut of a box set. This included, for the first time, the 1996 Stereo Mix of Pet Sounds. Also about 90 minutes of Pet Sounds Sessions. A Stack O Vocals version of the album. Alternative versions of album tracks. And a remaster of Pet Sounds Mono (not for the last time !!). Though what sets this apart is a full-on book on the making of Pet Sounds (mini in size not content). If that wasn't enough there is also a 36 page booklet with details of singles, adverts, comments on the album, lyrics, etc.

Move forward to 2002 and DVD-Audio is touted as the next big thing offering, for the first time, hi-res audio (referred to as Advanced Resolution back then). For the first time we have a 5.1 mix of the album, along with. The booklet is a slimmed down version of the Pet Sounds Sessions notes.

In 2006 Pet Sounds reached it's 40th anniversary and a furry-covered CD/DVD set is issued. The CD has the mono and stereo version of Pet Sounds, with the re-introduction of Hang Onto Your Ego as a mono only bonus track.

I had heard reference to Pet Sounds many times over the years and knew it to be considered by many prominent modern artists to be a formative influence and perhaps the greatest popular music album of all time. However, I somehow never got round to actually finding this out for myself. Firstly, although I had heard and loved some of the well-known Beach Boys classic hits, I never considered them to be worthy of ‘all time greatest’ material (except perhaps ‘God Only Knows’ and ‘Good Vibrations’, one of which is actually on Pet Sounds and the other of which is from the same era). Secondly, the fact that it was mixed in mono also put me off. I would love to say I am sufficiently discerning to appreciate a mono mix for pure musical content alone. But the truth of the matter is I like the quick audio fix that stereo gives – I am very much into swirling vistas of moving sound.
So, it was with great anticipation, and some apprehension at being let down, that I first listened to this Pet Sounds release. I skipped the mono tracks and jumped straight to the stereo re-mixes. I couldn’t quite believe what I was hearing, so I played it back again… and again. It is now two weeks on and I haven’t stopped playing it, back to back, time after time. And although I will no doubt listen to other music again at some point soon, I know I will be able to revisit Pet Sounds any time at all for the rest of my life. It really is eternal.
There will be classical purists who will snort with derision at comparisons between Brian Wilson and the great classical composers such as Mozart and Beethoven.

Surely one of the great albums of all time, Brian Wilson used his troubled genius to unsurpassed effect, pouring heart and soul into this collection of 13 masterpieces. In the Beach Boys he had at his disposal an incredibly skilled vocal group whose voices could blend and mix in the empathetic way that only comes from a family group who have grown up singing, and who were also perfectly capable of recreating the core of the album's sound in live performance.
Brian Wilson had worked hard for the group for several years, composing many of the songs, singing lead, arranging the harmony vocals, playing bass guitar and piano and honing his production skills, which were greatly inspired by the work of Phil Spector. He used the same pool of musicians and occasionally the same studio in Hollywood, and like Spector he was an innovator and pioneer who could brilliantly combine unusual pairs or multiples of instruments to create a unique single sound.

It all came together on this album, by which time he had retired from the touring group to concentrate on his composing and record-making. The beautiful melodies and the "pet sounds" he created were matched by some exquisite lyrics that were written in collaboration with Tony Asher and other writers. Brian Wilson had been inspired by hearing Rubber Soul and was fuelled by an ambition to match it in which he was wholly successful. In turn, Pet Sounds inspired the Beatles to go on to create Sgt Pepper. It was this spirit of competitive creativity that led to his unfortunate burn out during the creation of Smile, his response to Sgt Pepper.
