May 16, 1966 Pet Sounds and Blonde on Blonde are Released

On April 30 I discussed the 50th anniversary of Blonde on Blonde so it is not necessary to repeat the discussion.  On the same day the seminal Beach Boy album Pet Sounds was released.  I didn't buy it when it was first released, but I bought a vinyl reissue several years later.  I don't have a CD of it.  Many consider it Brian Wilson's masterpiece.  Part of the recent movie Love and Mercy described the making of Pet Sounds in 1966.  There is a very detailed discussion of the album in the Wikipedia.
My favorite cut is "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times".
