It was 36 years ago today that Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play. The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on June 1, 1967. There hardly seem to be words left to say about this watershed of modern music. They sure came up with a good batch of songs.
For the jaded lover of Sgt Pepper whose ears have grown weary of the beautiful but overfamiliar Beatles album: Help is here! Dig on the Big Daddy album Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. They perform the entire album song for song- 50s style. Dig the doo wop harmonies and the Jerry Lee Lewis-ized "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". Especially dig the Buddy Holly take of "A Day in the Life". Besides being surprisingly musically effective in their own right, these recordings will let you somewhat hear the Beatles album again with new ears.
