Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – The Album, The Beatles and the World in 1967:
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of what many think is the greatest Beatles album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Former EMI Press Officer and bestselling Beatles author Brian Southhall looks at all aspects of the album in a completely new way, discussing the music, the Beatles and global events in the exciting creative era that spawned one of the most popular and influential albums of all time. This book is a new way of telling the album’s story and is split into two distinct halves:
A: The “A-side” is all about the Beatles, the music on the album, the recording process, how the disc was received at the time and how subsequently it has been acknowledged as one of the greatest albums ever recorded.
B: The “B-side” looks at the state of the world in 1967. It covers the Summer of Love, anti-war protests, the Six-day War, the death of Che Guevara, the launch of Rolling Stone magazine, Jimi Hendrix’s first UK tour as a solo artist – and many more events of global significance. Fascinating photographs and text build up a complete picture of the world as it was when one of the most famous albums of all time was released.
