The Beach Boys Pet Sounds : The Greatest Album of the 20th Century

Book Description: Pet Sounds is the 1966 album that saw The Beach Boys graduate from lightweight pop like "Surfin' USA", et al, into a vehicle for the mature compositional genius of Brian Wilson. The album was hugely influential, not least on The Beatles. This the full story of the album's background, its composition and recording, its contemporary reception and its enduring legacy.

Dennis Wilson: The Real Beach Boy
by John Stebbins

Dumb Angel: The Life & Music of Dennis Wilson
by Adam Webb
"Dumb Angel", the first working title of "Smile", is said to have been an expression of Brian Wilson's insight into the character of his brother Dennis.
Dennis Wilson started out as drummer with the Beach Boys, a '60s teenage pin-up and the only true surfer in the group. He died prematurely in 1983, shortly after marrying his cousin's illegitimate love child. In between, he indulged copiously in sex and drugs, hung out with Charles Manson, married on three other occasions, wrote and sang on over twenty Beach Boys tracks, released one solo LP, and left a vast wealth of rare, beautiful studio material that remains largely unavailable to this day.
