“Rochmon Record Club: The Beach Boys – Pet Sounds”
In December 1965 the Beach Boys label mates, The Beatles, released “Rubber Soul”. Brian Wilson, the Beach Boy’s chief song writer and resident savant, left the road and sequestered himself in his home. It was then, with advertising copywriter turned lyricist Tony Asher, that Brian wrote the bulk of the album we know as The Beach Boy’s “Pet Sounds”. “Pet Sounds” is a work of absolute genius that features Beach Boys classics “Wouldn’t It Be Nice”, “Sloop John B”, “God Only Knows”, and “Caroline No” and 9 others. The Listening Party begins at 7pm with a live audio & video presentation by Chuck Vosganian aka “Rochmon”. We’ll listen to “Pet Sounds.” on The Linda’s state of the art sound system. A Rochmon Record Club Listening Party is meant to inform and deepen our understanding of the history of the individual performers, the songs and the stories that went into the making this iconic album. By listening together, we hear the album again for the first time.
