This is regarded by many people as the Beatles best album, one that has been copied, emulated from but never equalled. Sgt Pepper is deemed as the first concept album. Although acknowledging the albums greatness the author is a bigger fan of both Revolver and Abbey Road . The album was recorded over a four month period, and at the time cost a phenomenal 50,000 pounds to make. The idea to do a theme album was the idea of Paul McCartney’s.
The initial recording of the album was the track when I’m 64, recorded at the same time as Penny Lane and Strawberry fields forever; it was decided to release these two songs as a single. Amazingly this marked the end of the Beatles streak of eleven number one hits in the chart parade.
The sleeve of the Sgt pepper CD, like its lyrics was very original in concept; though the collage effect is continued from Revolver. It was designed by Peter Blake and based upon ideas and people who had had an influence upon the Beatles lives. The people on the cover of the Sgt. Pepper sleeve included people as diverse as Aldous Huxley, Bob Dylan, Fred Astaire and Laurel and Hardy. Adolph Hitler was removed from the cover of Sgt Pepper at the last moment as it was deemed to be in bad taste; it was John Lennon who had wanted it on the CD sleeve. The Beatles dressed up for the part of Sgt. Pepper by dressing up in special bright Sgt. Pepper cardinal admiral uniforms.
