50 years on it’s easy to see why some people don’t get Sgt. Pepper. It’s not just about the music, it captures the spirit of a particular time in 60’s British culture that can be hard to appreciate. Hearing this music for the first time back then was revolutionary and whatever you might think of the lyrics the music is spectacular. What we take for granted at the click of a mouse today the Beatles invented with customised equipment and tape loops literally sped up or slowed down. I love catching the little things that are easy to miss when you are engrossed in the melodies, like a little guitar flourish or Ringo’s squeaky seat. It’s difficult to pick my favourite between Paul’s bass lines or Ringo’s drumming. It is an album where you can close your eyes and let it fill your minds eye, perfect for the tube!
Standout track : How can you pick one? Whichever I pick you are probably going to disagree anyway!
