Beach Boys/Pet Sounds - "Behind the Music"

We all know Pet Sounds is a beloved classic. Well, here's a fascinating series of videos about the album I found today on YouTube.

It's called Behind The Sounds. Somebody took the recording session audio of various tracks and added pictures and annotation. It's a surprisingly insightful look at Brian Wilson and his groundbreaking production techniques.

I especially recommend the videos for "Sloop John B" and "God Only Knows".
