Best psychedelic Beatles album.

Jul 10, 2019

The experimental and interesting subversions made in this album have further cemented The Beatles as one of the greatest bands ever formed

The album Sgt. Pepper's has a reputation for being vastly different than what The Beatles had accomplished previously, where it took more risks and helped them to transition into their later music style, not to mention the way they revolutionized album covers with the spread of the four of them against many icons. Paul McCartney even confided that the album was a great risk, as he was constantly reminded that he would lose his massive following with the release of Sgt. Pepper's. Though it seemed to have worked out, 50 years later we look back on the album with profound joy- or at least I do. This new idea gave The Beatles much more creative freedom than previously, and it's evident in the record's impressive titles. "A Day In The Life" for example, is regarded as one of the band's best songs they've ever written! I like to speculate that without Sgt. Pepper's, the band would've gone on releasing more albums like "Please Please Me," which were original at the time of release but would've grown old with the repetitive style. To wrap up, I believe that Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was a critical pivot point for The Beatles and will forever remain one of their most iconic albums. @showmethemonet! of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

If you like listening to the Beatles, then, you're sure to enjoy this vintage musical offering from 1967.

One of the best records ever made! High recommend it! My favorites are Lovely Rita, With a Little Help From my Friends, Benefits of Mr. Kite, and A Day In The Life.

Find the 2017 Re-Mixed & Re-Mastered version only. Giles Martin's new mixing puts the listener in the middle. The depth and clarity of the sound is amazing. Listen to Disc 2 of out-takes and variations. Then go listen to the 2019 Re-mixed White Album aka "The Beatles" and "Love" from the Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas. It will blow your mind!

Absolutely essential listening. Vastly superior sound compared to earlier compact discs. Giles Martin has performed a miracle.

(Commenting on the 2017 remix/ remaster) - This classic album sounds great but I'm disappointed that the NWPL only purchased the single disc version instead of the two disc version.

50 years ago this week - Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band on June 2, 1967.

A Day In The Life, over 5 and a half minutes long, is often cited as the best Beatles hit ever, and certainly in everyone's top ten list. And then, how often have we sang When I'm Sixty-Four to those elders who actually turned 64 or hummed Lovely Rita to those lovely Ritas we came across? ... And talk about INSANE lyrics as "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds:"
Picture yourself in a boat on a river/
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies/
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly/
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes/
Cellophane flowers of yellow and green/
Towering over your head/
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes/
And she's gone/ ...

Noted that someone had posted the Lucy videos already. So, added the "A Day In The Life."
