On Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

So yesterday was the anniversary of one of the most amazing musical moments of all time, the release of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album kicked off the Summer of Love (we can only hope this summer is 1/10 as exciting) and everything changed. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography and the American National Biography celebrated the event with an interactive album cover. To trip just click.

    Excellent news! I think the Beatles were truly great and their songs still fresh even now – they haven’t lost their sparkle, which is amazing.
