Showtime will help bring The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds' 50-year celebration to a close this April with the release of a documentary chronicling the seminal album's creation.
Beach Boys: Making Pet Sounds features interviews with Pet Sounds mastermind Brian Wilson, as well as fellow surviving Beach Boys Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks. It takes viewers through the fraught recording of the 1966 set, which included such hits as "Wouldn't It Be Nice" and "God Only Knows." Pet Sounds was first released on May 16, 1966.
In addition to the exclusive interviews, the documentary includes archive footage and rare studio outtakes from the recording sessions. The documentary first ran on the BBC; Showtime has changed the title and added footage not seen in the original doc.
