“On a lot of records, more is less. With Brian, more always became more. There was never clutter. I think even if the record was full and didn't need any more, you could have Brian add something. Say 'Just for fun, add something,' and he could add more and more, and it would never get in the way. He could always find a spot, a little space where he could musically fill something. If you saw a graph, he could almost fill it until it turned black, so there were no more waves. And it could still sonically be healthy. I don't know where that kind of ability comes from. It's pretty scary.”—Danny Hutton - Pet Sounds Boxset, liner notes [link]

I’ve been loving these mixtapes for the past month or so, but with it already snowing outside I’m ready to move onto some good ol’ Christmas music.
Time to break out the Bing Crosby and the Vince Guaraldi?
