This is a very nice Original Capitol Mono pressing of the classic Pet Sounds. It's one of the nicer copies I've run into out in the stores in the many years I've been digging. The sound is pretty good and the vinyl plays mostly quietly with a touch of surface noise audible in the quietest parts. Truth be told this is not my favorite version for sound (you can contact me directly if you want a copy along those lines) but if you want a great original this is definitely a nice one.
5 stars in Allmusic which should surprise no one: "The best Beach Boys album, and one of the best of the 1960s. The group here reached a whole new level in terms of both composition and production"
Vinyl: VG+ (light hairlines visible under hard light)
Cover: VG+ (minor wear on corners and edges, very nice overall)
Play notes: A good sounding original that plays well
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
