The song Good Vibrations was recorded by Wilson in sections at different studios
in order to capture the sound he heard in his head.The instrumental recording of
the first version of Good Vibrations was recorded on February 17, 1966. After 26
takes, a rough mono mix completed the session. Rough vocals were recorded the following day. By February 25, Wilson had placed the recording on hold in order
to devote attention to the Pet Sounds album. The track was revisited on May 24,
1966, and worked on until June 18, at which time he put it aside again until
August 24. The various sections of the song were edited together.
