2017 marks the 50th anniversary of this little record called Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, considered by most as one of The Beatles’ most ground-breaking albums — not to mention one of the best records of all time. To celebrate half a century of Lucy, Rita, and Mr. Kite, Apple Corps and Capital are reissuing a stereo mix of the record with unreleased studio takes of each and every song, 15 more in all.
In addition, the reissue comes with a 144-page book covering the history/process of the record — with introductions by Sir Paul McCartney and producer Giles Martin — and the unreleased 1992-made documentary The Making of Sgt. Pepper. For any diehard Fab Four fan, this is a must grab. The reissue is out on May 26th via Apple / Capitol / UMe.
