I read the news today, oh boy. Turns out, it was 40 years ago Sgt. Pepper told the band to play. Perhaps the most influential album of all time, The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was released on June 1 (UK) and June 2 (USA), 1967.
Their production was second to none, and it’s getting better all the time. Could you believe in love at first sight? Well, with a little help from my friends at Wikipedia, I found out that the album was indeed a sensation from the day it was released.
I can’t really keep my mind from wondering if they had any idea back then what phenomenon it would become. I just heard the album through again, and it’s still perfectly brilliant. Some things just stand the test of time.
