The Beatles | Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band 50th Ann. [Vinyl Record]
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is the eighth studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. Released on 26 May 1967 in the United Kingdom and 2 June 1967 in the United States. It won four Grammy Awards in 1968, including Album of the Year, the first rock LP to receive this honour. Rolling Stone ranked it as the greatest album of all time and it is one of the best-selling albums of all time, with more than 32 million copies sold worldwide. The concept of the album started with an idea from Paul McCartney involving an Edwardian military band and evolved into creating the alter ego group Sgt. Pepper band. Through this fictional band, The Beatles were free to experiment artistically, and approached the studio as an instrument, including in the recordings many sound effects and tape manipulation. This album is viewed as a progenitor to progressive rock and is often described as the most important and influential rock-and-roll album ever recorded. This 50th anniversary special edition includes a new stereo mix of the original album by Giles Martin on the first LP and Sgt. Pepper studio sessions on the second, both mastered at half speed.
