THE ALBUM

[a picture of a section of the album cover]

A whole orchestra was used to record the instrumental tracks of the album, except for the song, "That's Not Me." Many of the musicians of the orchestra were also musicians used by Phil Spector, one of the best known producers of the 1960's. Brian always wanted to emulate Phil Spector's "Wall of Sound", and with Pet Sounds he found a way to do that and then some.

Although the album is noted as being a sonic masterpiece, it was recorded in mono and not stereo. The biggest reason for this is that Brian was deaf in one ear, so he couldn't hear in stereo. The album was remixed in stereo for its 30th anniversary.

It's been over 35 years since the album was made, yet it is still as beautiful and as wonderful to listen to as it was then. It's an album that will stand the test of time.
