Title: Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds Live
Label: Sanctuary Records
Artist: Brian Wilson
Rating: 5/5
Customer rating - 5 out of 5
Fantastic performance!


Who would ever imagine that a studio album's complete line up would be reprised live from the first to the last track? Ex-Beach Boy Brian Wilson brilliantly performs every song from the Beach Boys' PET SOUNDS album,released on Capitol Records in 1966. Over thirty-five years later,these songs sound exactly like or similar to the studio recordings. Of course,Wilson had a back-up band since he couldn't play all the instruments all by himself. That would be silly and impossible. Why didn't he elect the other surviving Beach Boys Mike Love,Alan Jardine and Bruce Johnston to join him in the making of this album? I suppose that with the eternal absences of Brian's brothers Carl and Dennis,they couldn't be the band their fans once knew and loved. But still,this is a fantastic performance recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in London. It's as if the Beach Boys recorded this in 1966 or '67,promoting PS.

Sarah Brightman's voice is amazing


The most perfect voice in music is back. Also her older CD albums LA LUNA, EDEN, & TIME TO SAY GOODBYE are must haves.

Holy smoke, Bullwinkle!!


OK, fine. Have it your way. Strauss' "Alpine Symphony" isn't the greatest composition he ever gave us.
Only problem is, you'd never know it from this unbelievable recording.
This just shows what can be done with (perhaps) less-than-great music when put in the hands of one of the conducting geniuses of the 20th century.
Astounding. And Deutsche Grammophon needs to be given credit as well. What a recording!

I LOVE CLAY!!


This was an outstanding CD!! I have been anticipating it for quite some time now and believe me, it's worth the wait! My favorite songs on the CD are probably "The Way" which is a great slow song, the title song, which implies his smooth vocals and hits those high notes like you wouldnt believe!! I also love "Touch" which is amazing lyrics that really capture you. Every song on this CD is truly breathtaking and I don't usually find a CD where I love every single song equally as much. I look forward to hearing more from him. WAY TO GO CLAY!!
