The Beach Boys in the studio during the Pet Sounds sessions 1967. Casually putting together a masterpiece.

Okay - you're not quite in the mood tonight for Schoenberg and Mahler (via the Mid-Week concert) and don't feel like jumping into something high-voltage, so I was thinking perhaps an excursion over to The Beach Boys and a track off Pet Sounds might be a good antidote for the mid-week madness.

Tonight's track, Don't Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder) is probably one of the lesser played songs off that legendary album, but to me it's always been a gem. And tonight we could use a few gems.

If you have the album, it's track 4 - if you don't . . .tsk,tsk,tsk, where have you been?

I know - too many notes, not enough life. That's why we're here to turn you on to things.
