The 50th Anniversary of "Pet Sounds"...

Well, I can't think of a better place to see Brian Wilson than in Southern California. He had the audience the moment he, rather gingerly, walked on stage.
Good overcast and cool Friday morning, y'all.
The concert last night was wonderful. The catalogue of songs that man has contributed to rock n' roll is truly astounding. He repeatedly apologized, I thought, for not playing the hits. It must still be stuck in his mind that the second best album in rock history, ( by those who list such things! ) was a complete debacle in the mid sixties... even in the mind of his own band. But, everyone in the reserved level, where I sat, kept reassuring him that the 50th Anniversary of Pet Sounds was the main reason for attending.
He ended the concert with some of his hit records and received a standing "O" with "Good Vibrations!"
