The first concept album in the history of popular music, the soundtrack of the Summer of Love or 'Hippy Symphony No. 1': Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is first and foremost the album that gave rise to 'hopes of progress in pop music' (The Times, 29 May 1967). Sgt. Pepper and the Beatles commemorates the fortieth anniversary of this masterpiece of British psychedelia by addressing issues that will help put the record in perspective.

Sgt. Pepper and the Beatles

Though a scholarly text, Julien edits a set of essays which are easy to read and present the friendlier end of academic writing. It’s still interspersed with fairly heavy musicological theories, but the premise – a celebration of forty years since the Beatles’ most popular album release – bespeaks a nonfiction with character and personality. And it analyses the humour and colour of Lennon’s brainchild, the alter-ego of Sgt. Pepper, and his (Lennon’s) poking metaphors at the Establishment and getting away with it through the power of music, rather than the banned blatant imagery that was planned for the album cover. This book is an exciting exploration of the concept behind the album and the spirit of the year, with the added bonus of culturally informed authors at the helm. Eye-opening and very enjoyable.
