A snippet for 1st June

On 1st June 1967, The Beatles released their ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ – their eighth studio album. It was recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios and included a couple of songs that I love – ‘Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds’ and ‘When I’m Sixty Four’ [which I was a few years ago!]  The album was an instant success; won four Grammy Awards and was named Album of the Year in 1968.

One thing I liked on the cover was the four Beatles, dressed like members of an Edwardian band, standing in front of a collage of celebrities and historical figures.

The music itself included a lot of technical wizardry that could not be achieved when the band played live on tour – but that difference made absolutely no worry to the audience.
