We recall the 50th anniversary of "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by The Beatles:
"Writing in The Times of London in 1967, the critic Kenneth Tynan called the release of Sgt. Pepper “a decisive moment in the history of Western civilization,” but 30 years later, Paul McCartney called it a decisive moment of a more personal nature.It was a great album, although I still believe that "Revolver" & "Rubber Soul" are better. Nevertheless, "Sgt Pepper's" had its impact and it was consequential! One of the most interesting songs was "A day in the life":
“We were not boys, we were men,” is how he summed up the Beatles’ mindset as they gave up live performance and set about defining themselves purely as a studio band. “All that boy [stuff], all that screaming, we didn’t want any more,” McCartney said.
“There was now more to it.” With Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Beatles announced their intention to be seen “as artists rather than just performers.”
