Pet Sounds; the emotional autobiography of its 23-year old “auteur,, Brian Wilson ” it is considered by many to be one of the greatest albums ever made. In the process of bringing it to life, its composer, arranger and producer (that is, Mr. Wilson) rewrote all the rules of what a record could be; as one observer noted, its release was “Independence Day” for rock ‘n’ roll. Primarily working with a new collaborator (lyricist and songwriter Tony Asher), the album featured a dozen originals (including two astounding instrumentals);

Pet Sounds was a musical canvas as boundless as Brian’s heart. (Ironically, when you hear the lost innocence in the wail of “Caroline No,” you realize that Pet Sounds not only heals our broken heart but Brian’s too.) On the charts in America, the album reached #10 and featured four hit singles (including two Top 10 hits, a reworking of the folk standard “Sloop John B” [#3] and “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” [#8] as well as two others that cracked the Top 40--“God Only Knows” and “Caroline No”). The former is considered by many, including Sir Paul McCartney, to be one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded; the latter was released as a solo single under the name “Brian Wilson”. (NOTE: It would be twenty years before there would be another Brian Wilson solo single.)

If you'd like to have the full Pet Sounds experience, visit Princess Cinemas in Uptown Waterloo on September 12 when they screen "The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds" as part of their Classic Albums Series. The documentary tells the story behind the making of the ground breaking album. For more information and show time, visit the Princess Cinemas website here.
