Lucy in the Sky

In June 1967 a record was released which changed the rules of what a ‘pop’ album might, should or could be. That album was The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.  

 Knowingly or unknowingly there is barely an artist working in mainstream popular music today whose recorded output is not in some way affected by the giant strides forward made in Sgt Pepper.

 As listeners, our expectations of what an album should be are affected by it too, even if we don’t always realise they are.

Sgt Pepper is possibly the most important and certainly the most influential album ever released. But why? In this musical exploration Howard Goodall shows us  just how revolutionary this album was – and is.
