On June 20th, 1942…

…musician Brian Wilson — best known for his work with the Beach Boys — was born.  Bob Dylan may have said it best when he said, “That ear– I mean, Jesus, he’s got to will that to the Smithsonian.”

A few tracks from Pet Sounds (which was been credited by The Beatles being a major influence on their Sgt. Pepper’s album):

Plus the Okkervil River song  John Allyn Smith Sails (which segues into Sloop John B.), which I can never resist (and which was introduced to me by a patron, so thanks for that!):

As always, if you would like to place a hold, please call the library at 985-2173 or visit our website.
