Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band


When I found this Beatles album in a corner of Makati Cinema Square Manila, 1996, really I did not know that this album is a very special item. Until I read the review from Wikipedia as written below. Unfortunately that I found this long playing naked without it’s cover.

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is the eighth album by The Beatles. It is often cited as their magnum opus and one of the most influential albums of all time by prominent critics and publications, ranking number 1 on Rolling Stone’s The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2003.

Upon release, Sgt. Pepper received both popular and critical acclaim. Various reviews appearing in the mainstream press and trade publications throughout June 1967, immediately after the album’s release, were generally quite positive. In The Times, prominent critic Kenneth Tynan described Sgt. Pepper as “a decisive moment in the history of Western civilization.” Others including Richard Poirier, and Geoffrey Stokes were similarly expansive in their praise, Stokes noting, “listening to the Sgt. Pepper album one thinks not simply of the history of popular music but the history of this century.” Thank God, I have this album.*
