    1. As an attractively-designed coffee table book with the remit of a basic overview, the expectations are perhaps not on the same level as Southall’s well-researched The Rise & Fall of EMI Records, but the immediate impression this book leaves is that there was no budget for an editor nor a proofreader. You can’t even just look at the pictures when given that the subject is the fiftieth anniversary of 1967, every LP is shown as a 1970s reissue (e.g. Pet Sounds in its Brother/Reprise sleeve, [...]

    2. The B-side is kind of weak. The A-side, about how the album was made, is excellent, but the B-side, about history, has more of a puff-piece feel, with only a sentence or two about each topic. It's heavily focused on the music industry, with The Rolling Stones, The Monkees, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Electric Prunes, Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead, Peter and Gordon, The Hollies, and Big Brother and the Holding Company getting some of the most repeated mentions. Probably the most covered stor [...]

    3. I am not sure there is a lot of new information here that I haven’t already learned in other books. The photographs are interesting, depicting what was going on in the world in ‘67 when Sgt. Pepper became such a part of the culture. It just not an easy read organization wise. In an attempt to make the book cover the size and look of an album cover, the book isn’t comfortable to hold and read either. I was just expecting more.

    4. It was 20 years ago todaybut more like 50. This book details the making of the album of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The book talks about what the songs are really about as well as the times that the album was written. The book is very well done and contains a lot of good information about the Beatles. The historical section in part 2 was a lot less interesting to me.

    5. This book is fascinating! I really enjoyed reading about The Beatles and this time period. And I also enjoyed finding out interesting and little known facts about bands I like. Reading about how the world was influencing song lyrics and the bands made me listen to some of the songs mentioned again. Anyone who likes the music from this time period should read this book!

    6. I thoroughly enjoyed it perhaps because I lived through that decade as a teenager and it brought many memories for me. I was also very pleased that it used many Beatles photographs that seemed new to me. A concise and mostly accurate review of 1967 in particular and other 60's years in general.

    7. A really nice tribute to the epic album on the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary. Nice design, pretty pictures, just enough background. Fun, but if you were looking for a scholarly take-- this isn't it.

    8. Not bad but a good bit of the book focuses on 1967 and not as much on the Beatles. If you have already read a fair amount on the making of Pepper then there is not going to be much you haven't read before.

    9. Amazing how much happened in '67, and the creativity of the Beatles.
