The Beach Boys' landmark 1966 Pet Sounds album is one of the most acclaimed and influential albums in pop music history. 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.

The original Pet Sounds entered the Billboard chart in May 1966, and remained there for 39 weeks, peaking at No. 10. It spawned four top 40 hits: Wouldn't It Be Nice (No. 8), Sloop John B. (No. 3), God Only Knows (No. 39) and Caroline, No (No. 32).

"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." -

"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 I’ve been born' to '...I’ve ever been on' — a wink to acid culture." - Rolling Stone
