” Let’s Go Away for Awhile ” is an instrumental by the American rock band The Beach Boys, from their 1966 album Pet Sounds. It is the sixth track on the album. The instrumental was the B-side to the 1966 single ” Good Vibrations “.It was included on the Neil Young soundtrack album Journey Through the Past as the closing track.Composition This is a great Burt Bacharach type of thing”, Wilson reflected in 1996 [ where? ].The track was composed and produced by Brian Wilson and was originally titled “The Old Man and The Baby”. An early full working title was “Let’s Go Away for Awhile (and Then We’ll Have World Peace)” – the parenthetical being a reference to Del Close and John Brent’s comedy album How to Speak Hip.In 1966, Wilson stated, “I think that on Pet Sounds, the track ‘Let’s Go Away For Awhile’ is the finest piece of art I’ve ever made. Does that sound like I’m bigtiming? It isn’t meant to. I just believe it. It all worked perfectly.” A year later he added, “I applied a certain set of dynamics through the arrangement and the mixing and got a full musical extension of what I’d planned during the earliest stages of the theme. I think the chord changes are very special. I used a lot of musicians on the track, twelve violins, piano, four saxes, oboe, vibes, a guitar with a coke bottle on the strings for a semi-steel guitar effect. Also, I used two basses and percussion. The total effect is ‘Let’s Go Away For Awhile’, which is something everyone in the world must have said at some time or another. Nice thought, most of us don’t go away, but it’s still a nice thought. The track was supposed to be the backing for a vocal, but I decided to leave it alone. It stands up well alone.” ;Personnel Hal Blaine: – drums;Julius Wechter – tympani, vibraphone;Lyle Ritz – string bass;Carol Kaye – electric bass;Al Casey, Barney Kessel – guitars;Al de Lory – piano;Steve Douglas: – tenor saxophone;Plas Johnson – tenor saxophone;Jim Horn, Jay Migliori – baritone saxophones;Roy Caton – trumpet;Steve Douglas, Jules Jacob – flutes;The Sid Sharp Strings;Arnold Belnick, James Getzoff, William Kurasch, Leonard Malarsky, Jerome Reisler, Ralph Schaeffer, Sid Sharp, Tibor Zelig – violins;Joseph Di Fiore, Harry Hyams – violas;Justin Di Tullio, Joseph Saxon – cellos An
