Wil­son Cel­e­brates Pet Sounds

Hot Press - - Music News 4104 -

Brian Wil­son’s le­gion of Ir­ish fans are in for treat when, ac­com­pa­nied by a 15-piece band, he plays Pet Sounds in its en­tirety at the Gal­way Arts Fes­ti­val (23) and Bord Gáis En­ergy, Theatre (25).

Re­leased 50 years ago, the Beach Boys’ mas­ter­piece was a re­sponse to what those Limeys across the pond, The Bea­tles, had achieved with St. Pep­pers.

With ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’, ‘Sloop John B’, ‘God Only Knows’, ‘Here To­day’ and ‘Caro­line, No’ among its boun­teous de­lights, it’s as close to the per­fect pop record as you’ll ever get.
