On 1st June, 1967 The Beatles released what would become the world's first concept album, SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. Described by Rolling Stone magazine as "The most important rock & roll album ever made..." the album not only changed the course of music but went on to become one of the biggest selling records of all time. Featuring interviews with former employees, fellow musicians, family members and journalists, and supported by a vast array of original and exclusive never-seen-before footage, the film offers a fascinating insight into the swinging sixties and the 12 months surrounding the album's release. Examining the band's disillusionment with touring, their changing relationship with manager, Brian Epstein, and the advent of the Summer Of Love, this star-studded rockumentary offers a fascinating insight into the creation and recording of one of the most ground-breaking and influential albums in pop history.
10/13/17. We are talking about one of Rock's greatest LP of all time, and this documentary doesn't even play any of it? Fifty years ago today? The legacy is in the music itself, not all this gibberish! A discussion of the inspiration for the songs that were on the LP would have been a lot more interesting to listen to and add to the enjoyment of the music than the reminiscing of - who are these people??? Don't even bother with this one, just listen to the LP - really.
