When considering which classic rock albums would seem to be natural choices to make the move to a 5.1 surround format, the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds -- a true sonic marvel when it came out in 1966 -- would have to be high on any list. Considered by many to be Brian Wilson's great masterpiece, Pet Sounds combined some of the richness and depth of Phil Spector's most ambitious productions with radical arrangement ideas that influenced The Beatles and many other late-'60s trailblazers. It's one of the most influential albums of that decade, so who wouldn't be curious to hear Brian's magnificent achievement spread out over six speakers? There's just one problem, which many people forget: Pet Sounds was a mono album!
"Barking dogs ó Wilson's dog Banana among them, in fact ó are prominent among the found sounds on the album. The Beatles made a point of echoing them on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band ó an acknowledgment that Pet Sounds was the inspiration for the Beatles' masterpiece." - www.rollingstone.com
"Wilson got turned onto the Bahamian folk song 'The Wreck of the John B.' by Al Jardine. For the Boys' version [Sloop John B], Wilson added elaborate vocals and Billy Strange's 12-string-guitar part. He also changed 'This is the worst trip since Iíve been born' to '...Iíve ever been on' ó a wink to acid culture." - Rolling Stone
