Fans of The Beatles, rejoice! We’re giving away some incredible anniversary music and goodie bags to celebrate the anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (which was first released in the summer of 1967) we’re giving you the chance to win some Sgt. Pepper’s music and goodie bags!
A press release from The Beatles highlights the “groundbreaking masterwork” of the album:
“It was 50 years ago this June 1st when The Beatles’ John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr astonished and delighted the world, ushering in the Summer of Love with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, a groundbreaking masterwork that became popular music’s most universally acclaimed album.”
“To salute the occasion, The Beatles will release a suite of lavishly presented ‘Sgt. Pepper’ Anniversary Edition packages on May 26 (Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/USM). The album is newly mixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio and expanded with early takes from the studio sessions, including no fewer than 34 previously unreleased recordings.”
“It’s crazy to think that 50 years later we are looking back on this project with such fondness and a little bit of amazement at how four guys, a great producer and his engineers could make such a lasting piece of art,” says Paul McCartney in his newly-penned introduction for the ‘Sgt. Pepper’ Anniversary Edition.
“‘Sgt. Pepper’ seemed to capture the mood of that year, and it also allowed a lot of other people to kick off from there and to really go for it,” Ringo Starr recalls in the Anniversary Edition’s book.
