Re Notes: I can't detect this on my original copy

What can I say? Listening to Analogue Production's MONO 45RPM pressing of Pet Sounds is an experience. No review will equal the experience of hearing the album for yourself. I know there are those that don't like short albums to be spread over two LPs, and I understand. But I think this pressing is an exception, and the minor inconvenience is totally worth it. You will hear things in these tracks you never heard before.

I'll never need another version beyond this. It's pretty much perfect. Finally.
Amis Amis
I couldn’t agree more. This is better than the Carl and the Passions version. Hands down.

This reissue released in 1974 the same as http://www.discogs.com/Beach-Boys-Pet-Sounds/release/2375419 on orange Capitol label

Noisy pressing that sounds off. Really messed up Brains vocals on this... Avoid.

I've had my copy of this for a while but never got around to commenting on it. The mastering, an AAA job from Kevin Gray, is incredible but this pressing definitely has some QC issues as sometimes happens with records that QRP presses (both for their related Analogue Productions label and others). My copy has a larger than normal spindle hole, which means even though the pressing is a bit off-center (especially on side 2) I can carefully, manually center the record so it's not dreadfully off-pitch. For a premium audiophile pressing, none of this should be necessary. Records should be pressed on-center with a correctly sized spindle hole, end of story.

Ordered directly from AP. Got an off-centered copy. Got a replacement copy, still the same. The QC is pretty disappointing, especially for the price and all the hype about AP.Records sound also a bit bass-heavy to me (but maybe it(s because of the defect).Records & covers look nice though...

Here is a link to the vinyl reviews review of this specific pressing: https://vinylreviews.com/album/pet-sounds/

Has anyone compared this to the 2LP 45RPM version? I'd like to get this one for the sake of less side-flipping, but want the best one possible. Just wondering if there's a huge difference.

AbstractWax 45RPM is just louder most likely. Turn up the volume on the 33 and its the same. Yeah, you have no idea what you're talking about. "The higher rotation speed of 45 RPM allows for a wider frequency response, and the larger available surface area allows for less compression of any signals with a wide amplitude. Bass is an example of a wide amplitude signal that sounds better on 45. Overtones and high treble are also better." If the 33 format is limited by the music sure. This is an old and short album, you can get the same effect by just cutting a bit quieter. Engineers like Gray and Hoffman would not limit the sound of this on 33.

AbstractWax gdf78 Has anyone compared this to the 2LP 45RPM version? I'd like to get this one for the sake of less side-flipping, but want the best one possible. Just wondering if there's a huge difference. I own both versions and can tell a fairly significant difference between the two. The 45rpm version, as predicted, has more noticeable separation between instrumentation and a bit richer bass. Studio banter seems more audible as well. It sounds like a brighter, almost entirely different mix where everything feels more pronounced. I recommend the 2 LP version to complement the 33 1/3 version. As you said, the extra flipping and swapping of records gets tedious. I also find it throws off the flow of the album since it was originally intended for only two sides. 45RPM is just louder most likely. Turn up the volume on the 33 and its the same.

Still available online for $35. Just picked up a copy today.

You better snap this up now! This pressing will exceed $100+ in the near future due to its clear quality, best analog sound and packaging! Beats all of them in blind shootouts.

I am only a fan of reissues done right and unfortunately the majority are NOT. This one is in the minority.

I thought you didn’t like reissues...or am I making an over-generalisation? ????
Karon Karon
I just got it, it's amazing. Such a full sound and the packaging is perfect.
Kizshura Kizshura
This pressing sounds very full and lively. The instruments are bold and stand out and the vocal harmonies actually have space to open up. I think it sounds good and rich textured and the orchestration of different sounds is very pleasing. Great reissue.

This pressing of Pet Sounds is outstanding. A week before, I purchased the UME "50th Anniversary" pressing, and I was completely unsatisfied with that one. With that aside, this Pet Sounds is the real deal. Beautiful cover, nice inner sleeve, solid disc.. And most of all, it sounds amazing. It feels "Stereo" - but is definitely mono. Please, buy this one, instead of the digitally-sourced ones you can get at the record shops. It's worth the extra money! Can't wait to play this on my soon-to-be restored Pioneer PL-5 with Ortofon cartridge. Currently playing it on a stock Sony LX-250h.

Funny thing (not really), I just got this from Amazon Marketplace... well, I got cover and insert, record and inner cover are missing :( Just contacted the seller...
Adoraris Adoraris
Believe the hype. I've got a clean 72 Carl and the Passions pressing, and a 2008 mono reissue, and this smokes both of them. Obviously your mileage will vary, but on a Rega RP6 with a DV-20X2, it sounds beautiful. The bass isn't overdone, it's just a lovely warm presence. The packaging is also lovely, which helps.
Samuhn Samuhn
Couldn't agree more. This is now the best-sounding LP I own. Sounds amazing on my Pro-Ject Debut Carbon. I'll be selling my current copy of PS and keeping this one!
Doriel Doriel
The packaging alone may be worth the price tag. Bass feels exaggerated at first, but then you get used to it (also would recommend listening to this in a large room if possible). I wouldn't say this is the best ever version, but it offers a different experience from past versions on vinyl and CD that were also excellent
Eayaroler Eayaroler
It is very nice for a single pocket jacket. Heavy stock and laminated and it recreates the original with the pasted back...nice!
Roram Roram
What about the packaging makes it worth the price tag? Thanks for any help

This might be the best version of Pet Sounds ever released. It's certainly miles better than the original pressings and the most recent reissues (Capitol 180g, 40th Anniversary). It seems like its only real competitors are the 70s Brother pressings and the DCC Hoffman-mastered vinyl. Those Brother pressings can be tough to find in good condition and the DCC goes for a lot of money these days. I haven't heard the DCC, but I really doubt it's worth $100 more than this pressing.The Analogue Productions release of Pet Sounds in mono is fantastic. The artwork is very sharp, the packaging doesn't feel cheap, and the vinyl is nice and weighty. I heard absolutely no surface noise on my copy. The album sounds incredible. Pick this up before it goes out of print and starts to fetch a lot of money. You won't regret it.
Tar Tar
The 180gram is digital sourced so this is surprising.
Beazerdred Beazerdred
I just got this and am disappointed with the sound quality. The instruments sound muddled. That said I do not have a Mono cart right now so perhaps that has something to do with it. the 180g version I also purchased sounds much better IMO.
Binar Binar
So, is this now the best mono Pet Sounds pressing out there?
Kemath Kemath
It is worth noting that the way Brian created the album in '66 was to bounce tapes as dubs. This makes the stereo far truer to the sound information on the tapes.He recorded in 4-track, and bounced that (for half of the album) to one track of a second four-track for vocal overdubs by the Beach Boys. He then mixed those to mono. For the other half of the album, he bounced the first 4-track tapes again to a 1" 8-track machine at CBS in LA and did the final mixdown to mono.The benefit is that the stereo mix is anywhere from two to four generations closer to the original multitracks of the sessions.Mark Linnett and many others argue this more than compensates for the digital sampling done at 16/48.
Reggy Reggy
I have to agree. It seems to give it more dimension.

The first time I fell in love with Pet Sounds was with the stereo mix, back in 1999, and no matter how many times I listen to the mono mix, trying to dig it, I still prefer stereo! I KNOW THIS IS SACRILEGE. There are plenty of albums which I prefer in mono, but I really believe the instrumentation in Pet Sounds benefits from a stereo soundstage. There is so much going on in those arrangements, and the stereo mix is just richer, to my ear. I know these are fightin' words, but everyone take comfort in the fact that I am surely a bit sentimental concerning this issue; the summer of '99 and Pet Sounds and my first true love are all wrapped up in my memory, so of course I prefer the record as I first heard it, right?
Dancing Lion Dancing Lion
Indeed, and don't even bother dropping your wad on the Stereo mix from digital source to analogue tape...
Carrot Carrot
The consensus is yes.
