Biography

"The story began in Harold Macmillan’s “never had it so good” ’50s Britain. It should be fiction: four teenagers with no more than eight O’Levels between them, running and biking and busing and busking all over Liverpool in search of new chords and old guitars and half-decent drum kit and any gig at all.
They were determined to amount to something – ... Read more in Amazon's The Beatles Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Standard CD pressing of The Beatles' classic album, one of the grand pillars of modern popular music that practically changed the world of the LP when it was issued in 1967.

Amazon.com

Before Sgt. Pepper, no one seriously thought of rock music as actual art. That all changed in 1967, though, when John, Paul, George and Ringo (with "A Little Help" from their friend, producer George Martin) created an undeniable work of art which remains, after 30-plus years, one of the most influential albums of all time. From Lennon's evocative word/sound pictures (the trippy "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," the carnival-like "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite") and McCartney's music hall-styled "When I'm 64," to Harrison's Eastern-leaning "Within You Without You," and the avant-garde mini-suite, "A Day in the Life," Sgt. Pepper was a milestone for both '60s music and popular culture. --Billy Altman

Customer Reviews

One of the best rock albums ever made.
Ariella Vaccarino creator of Voice Lessons To Go
Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band is probably the most well known and most recognised Beatles album.
"rhiannonatlarge"
It is just a really good album and you can hear all of the production and work that was put into it.

One of three LP/CDs by the Beatles among my all-time top ten, along with "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver". Though not my personal favorite, this recording is essential in any collection of pop/rock recordings. It has been, since its release, a standard by which others are measured. It also marks the high-water mark of the Beatles creativity as a band. After "Sgt. Pepper..." came a directionless time during which the "Magical Mystery Tour" and "Yellow Submarine" records were released, followed by the period the band's breakdown, as chronicled in the "White Album", "Let It Be" and "Abbey Road". Though these latter efforts contained plenty of great music, it was clear that the Beatles were increasingly unable to function together as a unit. Individual tracks almost always spotlighted one of the band members while the others worked essentially as a backing group.
During a recent TV special, it wa said that, during the time the Beatles were in the studio making "Sgt. Pepper...", there was a lot of doubt about what they would come out with and many fans were giving up on them. As someone who was around at the time, I certainly don't remember much of that. Of course, the Beatles always had a few doubters and detractors, but most of us were looking forward to their next record. Stories of how much time and effort were going into it only fueled our anticipation. It was like the release of the fourth Harry Potter book when "Sgt. Pepper..." finally came out. Some stores opened early and huge numbers were sold the first day of it's release. I bought a copy that day like many others. Nor was I disappointed. Since then, I have spent many hours listening to "Sgt. Pepper...

Format: Audio CD
This is one of my favorite albums by The Beatles. And now that it was remastered, it is a great pleasure to rediscover this old friend. SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND is not just an album: it is a legendary fragment of the 60's... and The Beatles in peak form.

I got this remastered version from the THE BEATLES STEREO BOX SET and it was with lots of care and attention that I listened to it from start to end. And I must say EMI made an amazing job. The music sounds brighter, sharper, clearer and much more exciting. Now, it is also clear to me that it all will depend on your stereo. Most people who claim there is no difference perhaps are listening to it in small underpowered stereo equipment that really does not do justice to these remasters. Personally, I doubt anyone won't see any positive difference here... but that's me. With my stereo, these new remasters are shining every second of it.

I'm playing it as I write this... and I cannot get tired of it.

SGT. PEPPER is an album full of subtleties and many hidden treasures. BEING FOR THE BENEFIT OF MR. KITE is one of those songs so rich and multi-layered that it is amazing to be able to listen to everything that is there. And now it is all there brighter and clearer. A DAY IN THE LIFE is absolutely astonishing because the voices of Paul and John were treated so differently that now we can appreciate even more the job done. LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMOND has a spatial depth I couldn't find on the previous CD. SHE'S LEAVING HOME, for me, is the star of this remaster: call me crazy, but I think the whole song got a dimension I never felt before. WHEN I'M SIXTY FOUR has Ringo's drums with an delicate extra oomp.

I loved it. This is one of my favorite Beatles albums.
Thanks EMI for such a great job.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love the Beatles. I love good audio. The thought of new and improved Beatles got me to purchase 3 remastered CDs (Rubber Soul, Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road) on the first day of release. After listening with my trusty Sennheiser HD580 headphones, what's the verdict?

Listening to the re-mastered CDs is like looking out a window that has just been cleaned. The view is the same, but it is sharper, with more detail. The SOUND is the same, but there is more attack and decay (the 'shape' of the beginning and end of sounds), especially on vocals and acoustic instruments.

The sound stage is more spacious. McCartney's bass work on 'Day in the Life' is more melodious. 'Lovely Rita' has even more little hidden sounds at the end. When Lennon says 'bye' at the beginning of the Sargent Pepper Reprise it is clearer.

So what's not to like? Nothing, really. It does not feel overproduced, compressed or 'sweetened'. It feels like the record the Beatles would have made with better audio equipment. It's not going to bowl you over. It's the same music. It just sounds better.

Some people have said that they cannot tell the difference between the two versions. I have a pretty good audio system, and the difference was noticeable, but not dramatic. If you have a lower end audio system the differences may not be worth the purchase price if you own the original CDs.

But if you don't own the CDs, for goodness sakes, the remastered version is better. And if you have a pretty good stereo, the difference is worth the price of admission.

what's wrong with the remasters: a fundamental problem.
Sure, i'd LOVE to hear some of this stuff remixed. BUT sgt pepper CANT be remixed, cos of the way it was recorded. Listen to the individual tracks from the Sgt pepper album. Cos it was recorded on 4 track, everything is on one or two tracks. Drums, guitars, rhythm instruments, then another... Read More

Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane...
The story is that the Beatles had not come out with a single for a few months, and the record company was pressuring them to produce one. Thus, Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields was released as a single. I haven't heard Martin say anything about having wished the songs were included on the album... Read More

FYI: NOT the birth of the CONCEPT ALBUM
I believe it was actually Mozart who came up with the first 'concept album' if you want to be strictly technical about the music and forget the fact that the music wasn't recorded in his day.

Or maybe it was caveman Mugugg who first had the idea of a body of work that followed a particular... Read More

This Vinyl...Is From EMI? Is a Analog Transfer? Like the Original...
It says it's from Austria and is certain to be the version pressed from the 1987 digital masters that were prepared for the first cd releases back then. This has been the norm for all Beatles vinyl pressings worldwide since. You will have to look for original UK vinyl- pre 1987- if you want to... Read More
