The greatest pop music album of them all gets the royal treatment on Tuesday, November 4, 1997.
“Pet Sounds Sessions,” a 4-CD set which explores in detail the crafting of this pop masterpiece, is being released by Captiol Records. In it, the creative genius of lead Beach Boy Brian Wilson is offered in all of its glory and the vocal harmonies of The Beach Boys are displayed as rarely ever heard before. Capping off the many previously unreleased snippets and outtakes from some of pop's most famous songs, is a full-stereo version of the album in its entirety, available for the first time to the public.
Co-produced by Brian Wilson and David Leaf (my friend and long-time biographer of Brian and the band), it is absolutely beautiful in both content and approach. Get it at a music store near you and witness some of the most historic moments in Rock & Roll history.
