Product Description & Reviews
A unique retrospective-produced by Brian Wilson himself-that redefines and deconstructs a musical work of art like never before! Here is the first-ever true stereo mix of the album; the symphonic instrumental backing tracks without vocals; the choral-like vocals without instrumental tracks; more than a dozen alternate versions of tracks from the Pet Sounds sessions; a remastered version of the original mono album; a 42-page color booklet with rare photos from the session and ANOTHER 120-page booklet with interviews of the Beach Boys, Paul McCartney and George Martin. God Only Knows; Wouldn't It Be Nice; Caroline No songs so great it's worth hearing them five different ways! Released in 1966 to tepid sales (and hence causing no small amount of grumbling among the notoriously fractious band members), Brian Wilson's Rubber Soul-inspired album of "spiritual love" eventually became one of pop music's most celebrated artistic accomplishments. Paul McCartney would later claim that Pet Sounds in turn inspired the Beatles' magnum opus, Sgt. Pepper. This four-disc box set offers an unprecedented deconstruction of Wilson's masterpiece, taking fans, armchair scholars, and musicians on a compelling creative journey. Leading off with what once was heresy--a complete true-stereo mix of the album cleverly conjured from the existing session tapes by engineer and project coproducer Mark Linett--the set proceeds through edited audio collages that document the evolution of each song's backing track. Along the way, listeners are treated to a playful, unreleased gem ("Trombone Dixie") and the very genesis of Wilson's other great period masterpiece, "Good Vibrations." Conversely, disc 2 presents all the songs' glorious harmonies, sans instrumental backing tracks, then 19 more tracks that highlight alternate working versions (including the original take on "I Know There's an Answer," the pointedly titled "Hang On to Your Ego"), session snippets, and radio promotional spots. Disc 3 contains a newly remastered version of the album's original mono mix. The album's two comprehensive booklets were written and edited by coproducer and veteran Beach Boy biographer David Leaf and include commentary by Wilson and quotes from McCartney and producer George Martin. The 126-page "Making of Pet Sounds" pieces together the recollections of the band, session men, and engineers behind the epochal album into a warm, human-scaled history. --Jerry McCulley

Conceived as an introduction to Antony & The Johnson's new full-length 'I Am a Bird Now' (due 2-1-05 on Secretly Canadian), 'The Lake' consists of three songs: the lead-off single to 'I Am a Bird Now' and two previously unreleased songs, one of which was featured on Devendra Banhart's 'Golden Apple of the Sun' (Bastet) earlier this year. Less orchestrated than Antony & The Johnson's self-titled debut, 'The Lake' shows a confidence and maturity that many fans in New York have grown to love.
