The Beatles’ most intrepid work, but in each of their adventures in “Sgt. Pepper’s” John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr demonstrated that, as musical machinery in full swing, they had no rival.

The idea for the album came from McCartney on a trip from Nairobi to London, after which he proposed to the rest of the band to incarnate “in another group” and suggested the name ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band ‘, inspired by the bands that proliferated those years in the United States.

‘Sgt. Pepper ‘was well received by critics – British writer Kenneth Tynan said the album represented “a watershed moment in the history of Western civilization.”
