The 50th Anniversary of 1967
"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by The Beatles (1967)
The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"  1967 (UK)
We're featuring exclusively the music of 1967 on the show this week for pledge drive. OK, I finally had to do this one! Released 50 years ago this month, The Beatle's seventh studio album is where "greasy teenage rock 'n' roll" grew up into "Rock Music for adults, which can be ART!" There certainly was no album released that year that was more important than this one. Lauded at the time for the fact that all the songs flow together into connected musical suites (the dawn of Prog Rock!), in fact there was another album released across the ocean the same week that similarly stitched all the material together into two sidelong suites - and arguably did it in a much more sophisticated and thematically coherent way. That album was the second by The Mothers of Invention, Absolutely Free. But The Mothers were really ugly and could not write catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics that captured the zeitgeist like the great Lennon-McCartney, which is the irreplaceable element that makes Sgt. Pepper more than just an innovative way to arrange songs on vinyl.
