It Was 20, No Make That, Forty Years Ago Today
It was 40 years ago today on June 1, 1967 that The Beatles released their breakthrough classic album, SGT. PEPPER's LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. The album was not only a breakthrough in writing ability, production and musicianship, but also showcased each of the talents of the four individual Beatles and was a wonderful showcase for the individual talents of the four musicians.
For the first time on any Beatles album, the individual personalities and writing styles were never more clear to the fans of the group. And unlike many previous Beatles albums in which many songs were penned by others or else cover versions of already released songs, every song was new and a creation of The Beatles. ROLLING STONE Magazine rated SGT. PEPPER as #1 among the 500 greatest rock albums of all time.
If you haven't heard this complete album in some time, then it's time for you to go out any buy a fresh cd to enjoy. Compared to many so-so new albums on the market, this album is like the CITIZEN KANE of rock albums. This is the standard by which any good rock album should be measured.
