About this item

After playing their last ever live concert in Candlestick Park, August 1966, The Beatles spent the next year in the studio (unheard of for a pop group), and came out with "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". What can you say about "Sgt. Pepper's" that hasn't already been said? It was the first ever sit down and listen CONCEPT ALBUM! A song-suite that beautifully flows. The first album where songwriters were to be considered alongside classical composers? 1967; and something most definitely was in the air. Everything went multicoloured and psychedelicized! And The Beatles made a gorgeous pop record that you could still play to your gran! It's easy to forget now, after 40 odd years of 'Best Album Ever' gongs and endless platitudes, just how groundbreaking this set was at the time - it's become a bit '"Sgt Pepper's" blah blah blah, yeah, know all about that'. But coming back to the album afresh, it still sounds amazing, especially final track "A Day In The Life", which is still totally astonishing. It's the perfect blend of John and Paul.
