Best Classic Bands‘ contest winner will win a four CD/Blu-ray Audio collectors edition presented in a hardbound book, featuring the remastered original album in stereo and mono, plus hi-res stereo, mono, instrumental, and 5.1 surround mixes, session outtakes, alternate mixes, and previously unreleased live recordings.

The 50th Anniversary release is also available for purchase in the following formats: a 2CD Beach Boys Pet Sounds 50th Boxand digital deluxe edition pairing the remastered album in stereo and mono with highlights from the collectors edition’s additional tracks; and remastered, 180-gram LP editions of the album in mono and stereo with faithfully replicated original artwork.

The Beach Boys’ 11th studio album, Pet Sounds wasn’t initially met with the enthusiasm it has subsequently received. The band’s five preceding studio releases all charted higher. Yet its impact as a concept album came to be appreciated in later years and has earned a rank as one of popular music’s greatest albums ever recorded. It entered the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 1998 and was ranked #2 in Rolling Stone‘s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Brian Wilson recently told Best Classic Bands: “I decided to experiment with a new kind of music. I was young and creative and we really did good. I’m glad that people still like the album. It makes me proud.”

Pet Sounds‘ most well-known songs are its three most popular singles: “Sloop John B,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “God Only Knows.”
