The Beach Boys 1967 Rehearsals

...we may not be much for posting a lot of archival material around here, but this morning's offering from Aquarium Drunkard simply could not be overlooked. While the occasion for this Beach Boys rehearsal session dated 1967 is somewhat obscure, the material serves as a stunning reminder of the beauty of the band's music. Admittedly, it took countless listens for us to finally admit that the band's 1966 magnum opus Pet Sounds might actually be worth its historical standing, the stark nature of these rehearsals bear out the Beach Boys aesthetic perhaps even better to our ears. In their rawest state, the Beach Boys demonstrate why their vocal harmonies still serve as a template for all followers...
