On 1st June, 1967 The Beatles released their ground-breaking studio album, Sgt. Pepper’S Lonely Hearts Club Band. Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “The most important rock & roll album ever made…”, it left an indelible mark on the 60s and went on to become one of the biggest selling records of all time. It Was Fifty Years Ago Today! The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper & Beyond examines the twelve months (Aug 1966 – Aug 1967) that would arguably be the most crucial in the band’s career, a year in which they stopped being the world’s number one touring band and instead became the world’s most innovative recording artists, pushing the boundaries of what could be achieved in the studio.
