Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band hits shops

1967: The Beatles new LP – entitled Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – has been released.

There are 13 tracks and virtually no bands of ‘silence’ between them.

Twelve of the 13 songs are Lennon-McCartney compositions; one is written by George Harrison.

On one track George Harrison’s Within You Without You only one Beatle is featured. George himself. And he has Indian musicians backing him.

On another track called A Day In The Life there is a 41-piece orchestra.
