“Sgt. Pepper” Turns 55

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was the eighth studio album by English rock band the Beatles. Released on 1 June 1967, it was an immediate commercial and critical success, spending 27 weeks at the top of the albums chart in the United Kingdom and 15 weeks at number one in the United States. The album was recognized for its innovations in music production, songwriting and graphic design.

It was 55 years ago today that The Beatles officially released their landmark LP Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in the U.K., though their label rushed copies into some stores six days early on May 26, 1967. (It went on sale in the U.S. on schedule on June 2.) Whenever you want to mark that anniversary, the record has been a point of reference for popular music ever since.
