Capitol CD set for ‘Pet’

Nearly 18 months after its first scheduled release, Capitol Records/EMI-Capitol Entertainment Properties will issue the four CD “Pet Sounds Sessions” by the Beach Boys on Nov. 4.

The four CDs feature a remastered mono version using HDCD technology, the first ever stereo mix supervised by head Beach Boy Brian Wilson, alternate mixes, vocal- and instrumental-only versions of songs along with the demo of “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)” and the upbeat “Caroline, No.”

Despite it being the first Beach Boys album to not go gold soon after release (though it did reach No. 10 in May 1966), “Pet Sounds” has become a holy grail of pop craftsmanship. Its influence, through the composition, arrangement and production of songs such as “God Only Knows,” “I Just Wasn’t Made for These Times” and “That’s Not Me,” has been felt in works as divergent as the Beatles and Sonic Youth.

The “Pet Sounds Sessions” package will also include a 120-page CD-size book featuring comments from Paul McCartney, who has been among the album’s biggest champions, Wilson and his bandmates, and the technical personnel on the album.

Before the release of “Pet Sounds Sessions,” the Beach Boys can be heard on “MOM II,” a new compilation from Surfdog/Interscope Records that benefits the Surfrider Foundation, an environmental group dedicated to cleaning up the oceans and coastlines.

Brian Wilson can be heard on four tracks on the new disc by his daughters, the Wilsons, due in September from Mercury. He is now working on a solo album in Chicago.
