Product Description

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.ca

Before Sgt. Pepper's, 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 3-plus decades, 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's was a milestone for both 1960s music and popular culture in general. --Billy Altman

A Day in the Life is good, some other songs are, too, but I think Rubber Soul or Magical Mystery Tour should have been the Beatles 'Album of the Year' award winner. (R.S. in `65 and MMT in `67). I know that this was the most original concept but I don't see where it won album of the year. I love the Beatles, so it's not a crime for me to say this. But other Beatles albums should have won the '..of the Year' award.

Don't believe the hype about this Beatle collection ... yes, it has amazing peaks at its beginning and ending, but it also has incredibly-low valleys in-between. John Lennon himself never thought much of this album, or how it became to be known as a "concept" album--The Wall by Pink Floyd is a concept album, not this. What bogs Sgt. Pepper down are the middle cuts (I was about to talk about album sides) "Fixing A Hole," "She's Leaving Home," "Mr. Kite," "Within/Without You" "Good Morning" these ALL sound so uninspired and subpar especially for a group as talented as the Beatles--maybe too much of the lysergic, eh lads? ... Get "Revolver"--a TRUE Beatle classic, then check out the almost-just-as-magnificent "Rubber Soul."

Sgt. Pepper is great album, and has a unique place in 20th century popular music. Enjoy it. Unfortunately, the significance of this recording has been exaggerated by enthusiastic fans, so to appreciate its true stature I'll say the following:
First, Sgt. Pepper is and was not a 'concept album'. Unless the concept was maximized diversity, which was earlier attempted in the album "Revolver'. If anything, Sgt. Pepper was an anti-concept album, covering as many different styles and themes as possible.
Second, Sgt. Pepper was not the greatest pop album of the last century. Like other Beatles albums, it had some great songs (Day in the Life, With a Little Help from My Friends, She's Leaving Home), some good songs (When I'm Sixty Four, Sgt. Pepper, Within You Without You) and some mediocre songs (Good Morning Good Morning, Lovely Rita, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds). John Lennon thought that the White Album was better, McCartney thinks that Pet Sounds (a real concept album) was better. So take it from John and Paul, this was not the best thing ever.
Thirdly, Sgt. Pepper marks the end of an era, in that it was the last project for which the Beatles really functioned as a group, and Lennon and McCartney really wrote songs, and sang them, together. Although they did sing together in 'Let it Be', that was mostly to create the false impression that they were still functioning as a collaborative group.
It's an outstanding album. It will be popular as long as people listen to recorded music. Enjoy it, don't dissect it or worship it.

Sorry folks, but this album just doesn't age well. Rubber Soul is much better, as is the White Album. By working so hard to be the hippest thing on the planet in 1967, the Beatles produced an album that defines its own moment but now stands as an anachronism. I'd rate this one right up there with the Moody Blues' Days of Future Past. The self-conscious "artistry" of each of these recordings dates them horribly.

First, the concept of albums will soon become obsolete, what with MP-3 and CD burning. The original vinyl SGT PEPPER released in June '67 coincided with stereo releases and headphones replacing mono and transistors for the younger set. And George Martin's production (Bob Dylan always said it was over-production) brought forth sounds that popular music hadn't experienced before. But if today's CD buyer were to analyze this album by the songs, he might think about half are good or even great, and half aren't, so why all the fuss? Frankly, I always felt that the Beatles should have combined SGT PEPPER with MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR (released only 6 months later), because SGT PEPPER was overrated and MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR was underrated. The best tracks on PEPPER are "Day in the Life" (still a classic Lennon-McCartney song), "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", "Good Morning Good Morning," "Fixing a Hole" and "With a Little Help from My Friends." But they should have left in the dust bin "She's Leaving Home," "When I'm 64", "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite," and replaced them with the stronger 1967 tracks of "I Am The Walrus," "Strawberry Fields Forever," and "Fool on the Hill" from MYSTERY TOUR. In fact, this is how I would have made their 1967 release of SGT PEPPER'S MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR: Side A -- Getting Better, With a Little Help from my Friends, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Fixing a Hole, Hello Goodbye, Flying, I Am the Walrus....... Side B -- Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, Within You Without You, All You Need is Love, Good Morning Good Morning, Fool on the Hill, A Day in the Life........ Now tell me Beatle fans, is that one STRONG 5 STAR album or what ?Read more ›

I suppose Rolling Stone can't admit that Sgt. Pepper is less than stellar some 35 years after its debut (after all, the magazine is as old as the album), but when I saw it listed as the BEST album of all time, I couldn't take it anymore. Truth be told, I wonder who in the hell keeps perpetuating this myth that Sgt. Pepper is the Beatles' best. I could easily think of albums much better, either by the Beatles themselves (Revolver, Abbey Road, and the White Album, in that order) or others (Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys, "The Velvet Underground and Nico", Joy Division's "Closer", etc). Face the facts, folks: Sgt. Pepper is a product of its time, and one that hasn't hold out well. Granted, there are psychedelic relics that hold up less well than Pepper, but none of them have ever been mistaken for "the BEST album ever". I have each of the Beatles' albums, I am not one of these "Beatles #1" fans (owning only a copy of the "best of" that came out a few years ago, to line Messers. McCartney and Jackson's pockets), I know what I'm talking about when I say that (while this is a good album in its own right) it's not the BEST album ever.
I must confess, I got this album free on CD after having it on tape for years beforehand, so I can't complain about "wasting my money" even if I hated it (see my "Let it Be...Naked" review). But as good as this album is (and I can't stress this enough) it is not the BEST album ever...that honor belongs to Revolver. Rolling Stone needs to pull their heads out of their collective asses and admit as much.
