This snuck up on me, just like June itself, but it’s the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. I could give you my take on it, but this article does a fine job of describing the greatest album of all time (start the argument in the comments). I’d like to able to say what it felt like the day it was released, but at the time I was not quite three, and likely had more important issues to deal with. But, I know my brother, who is nine years older listened to it, over, and Over, and OVER. It was his obsession. It was unique in so many ways that it was a different experience every time you listened to it. Albums previous to this were just a collection of songs by an artist or a group. Sgt. Pepper changed the meaning of an album, and it’s refreshing to think about it 40 years later in this era of $.99 music downloads. So some time this month, attempt to sit down and listen to all the songs all at once. Preferably listen to the LP at 33 1/3 rpm on a Hi-Fi.
