Soundtracking the Pet Sounds Podcast Series - Bonus Episode "Good Vibrations"

Bonus Episode: “Good Vibrations”
This is one of the strongest episodes we produced in the entire series. In fact, when Mike and I went to meet our colleagues at Capitol we prepared a mock up of a video podcast version of “Good Vibrations” to use as an example of what a Pet Sounds podcast series could be like. We even set it up to play via mobile streaming as well as an ipod, etc. It was really cool. So, it was fitting at the end of the series to develop a “bonus” episode especially for “Good Vibrations.”

This episode is set up like the song. It is organized into parts – each part follows the person talking and music used sort of blends in and out. The nearly 8 minute-episode offers some of the best Brian Wilson material we recorded during our two-hour session with him. Mike Love tells a long and great story too. Al offers a small chunk of trivia while Bruce caps everything off as he did during most of the podcast series. I guess if I had to pick one episode to play for someone as a great example of this work I would select this one. Enjoy!

Hi there,
My name is Matte and i am writing you on behalf of Barcelona's Houston Party Records. We will shortly present Do it Again: A Tribute to Pet Sounds. The record will be released for the 40th anniversary of the original; an impressive and diverse array of artists adhered to the project: from Will Oldham to Micah P. Hinson, to Vic Chestnutt, to Daniel Johnston, and the result is a very fresh and contemporary homage to a classic masterpiece!

Hi Guys, Just wanted to pass back some comments on the Pet Sounds series. Fantastic job, very well put together, and highly informative. You certainly highlighted some stuff, with the help of the surviving Beach Boys, that I never knew before.

Interestingly (but not suprisingly) Brian Wilson appears quite dismissive of Mike Love's contribution, which I believe was quite significant, if not on the songwriting certainly on the vocals.

Thanks again on what has been a real labour of love - what do you plan on doing as a follow up??

Best regards, Pete Reilly
