A Day In The Life: Sgt. Pepper’s….
It was 50 years ago today, May 19, 1967 that The Beatles threw a huge press party at manager Brian Epsteins home in London. The party was to announce and celebrate the upcoming June 1st. Release of their eighth studio album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” The album celebrated a radical change in how The Beatles made records with it’s emphasis on experimentation. It also represented the official end to any future tours for the band, as they could never replicate the sounds and arrangements they were discovering in the studio. Sgt. Pepper would go on to become Thee most Iconic album in music history, as famous for it’s cover as it is for it’s music…..To date Sgt. Pepper has sold over 35 million units. And here is a small factoid. Sgt. Pepper was the first album to include all the lyrics to all the songs on the back cover!

P.P.S…Stand by for an onslaught of re-issues and re-mixes come June 1st.
