Default It Was Fifty Years Ago Today

Sgt. Pepper blew the world away.

You can love the Beatles, you can hate the Beatles, or you can be completely indifferent. Yet by any objective measure it cannot be denied that this is a viable candidate for the most influential album ever released. Maybe you should check it out some day.

Ever the taciturn sage, Bob Dylan told Paul McCartney upon his first preview of the music, "Oh I get it, you don't want to be cute anymore."

I like the Beatles. I iike this album. I wish it was 20 years ago today, I'd be 30 years younger.

I still prefer Abbey Road, but Sgt Pepper's is undeniably great.

I'm in the "meh" category but, for those that get a chubby for the Beatles, there's a new SeriousXM channel dedicated just to them - channel 18.

Maybe you soon shall, as it is projected to top the charts again in the following weeks.

I prefer Abbey Road and The White Album myself, but that wasn't the point.

It was very influential. Didn't care for Abbey Road or the White album much. I greatly preferred the lps leading up to Sgt. Pepper except Magical Mystery Tour which came after but I really liked better.

Default Re: It Was Fifty Years Ago Today

Revolver and Rubber Soul are great albums, and MMT gave us "I Am The Walrus", which by itself is worth the price of admission. But the first two were arguably "only" the first steps towards Sgt. Pepper, while MMT would have been a strange outlier without it . . . much like Satanic Majesties Request was for the Stones.

And no need to be sorry. I lived through Beatlemania, but never caught the disease, so there's no offense taken. People like or dislike what they will. Yet one should give the boys their due, and thus I do.

I like Revolver better; Taxman, Eleanor Rigby and Tomorrow Never Knows are among their best ever.

Default Re: It Was Fifty Years Ago Today

For what it's worth (insert Buffalo Springfield link here), Rolling Stone names Revolver as the #3 greatest album of all time. Rubber Soul appears at #5, and The White Album comes in at #10.

Three guesses which is #1, and the first two do not count.

Captain Beefheart does hold a higher rank than Sgt. Pepper.

I have 4 or 5 copies of Sgt. Pepper on vinyl. I play it at least once a year.
