Is this the work of anyone here?
On the old blog I wrote a long piece about seeing Bob Dylan live in Sheffield in 1966. After the Afterword site went down the Dylan piece was subsequently picked up by a couple of blog sites and attracted interest from far and wide.
Then I was approached by the BBC to take part in a Radio 4 documentary about the day in question May 16, 1966. It seems that both Blonde and Blonde and Pet Sounds were released on that date.
The documentary goes to air next week.
So Pet Sounds and Blonde On Blonde are half a century old next week. Which one has aged better?
I see from the Uncut 200 Greatest Albums of All Time thread that the ubiquitous Pet Sounds continues to bestride the Best Album polls like a pop/psych Colossus.
Not everyone is in full agreement however, There follows a essay I wrote for the old blog which was sadly lost following the 48 Crash.
I hope it doesn’t cause too much offence to Beach Boys fans.
