And David Bianculli on NPR's Fresh Air did this report with covers of various Sgt. Pepper songs - a surprise, non-Pepper finish too!
I always loved the guitar in Good Morning, Good Morning, which was inspired by a Kellog's commercial.
Here's a good website that I love to read at times. It goes into a lot of the history and behind the scenes stuff that inspired their songs. Here's the link for Sgt Pepper....
But the album that preceded Pepper (Revolver) was one of their finest as far I'm concerned. Some of the best rock music ever put on vinyl.
Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during those recording sessions.
What I always thought was simply hilarious was when the Bee Gees did their Sgt Pepper musical (late 70's)... Maurice said they'd be better remembered for Sgt Pepper then the Beatles. Poor, poor, "wannabe" Bee Gees.

"panic" only comes from having real expectations
I was not around....but I love that album, and every album they did. I love the '60s and '70s...the music, the culture, and some of the extra carriculars that went with it (which I've grown out of )
I should have grown up with my parents....but that would just be weird.

Because this was the only Beatles album that my parents owned, this was my first exposure to the band. I will always have a special spot in my heart for this group--mostly because of what I experienced while listening to this album over and over again...
