"Barking dogs Wilson's dog Banana among them, in fact 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 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 Ive been born' to '...Ive ever been on' a wink to acid culture." - Rolling Stone
