45 years ago today The Beach Boys released Pet Sounds. It bounces all over the pages of history as one of the most influential pop records of all time with the highest of high praise from Sir Paul to the likes of freewheelin Bob Dylan. Me? I just dig on Brian Wilson reworking a turn of the century island tune about getting drunk and stirring up trouble all over the island of Nassau. Sounds like a bare foot, crossed eyed party. In!
