Full Synopsis
A carefully crafted and collectible volume celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of a legendary and groundbreaking Beatles album. Expert Brian Southall's unique edition recounts the story behind the music and the cultural climate of 1967 when Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band debuted.

The "A-side" of this coolly curated title is all about the Beatles, the music on the album, the recording process, how the disc was received at the time, and how it has been acknowledged as one of the greatest albums ever recorded. The "B-side" looks at the state of the world in 1967, from the Summer of Love to anti-war protests to the launch of Rolling Stone magazine to Jimi Hendrix's first U.K. tour as a solo artist—and so much, much more.

"Written by the former EMI Head of Press Brian Southall, this project delivers a rave of photos, interviews, anecdotes, and expert commentary on the album and the Fab Four." ---Foreword Reviews

"Johnny Heller's reading puts listeners in the studio with the Beatles as they create a musical sound as significant as the Beach Boys' 'Pet Sounds.'" ---AudioFile

"[Southall] is thorough and passionate in his writing." ---100% ROCK Magazine
