EDITORS’ NOTES

Sgt. Pepper's was recorded in a four-month span beginning in 1966. The advent of new studio techniques such as multitrack recording and pitch shifting (recording tracks at different speeds) as well as the band's increasingly diverse influences led to the LP's kaleidoscope of sound experiments (music hall, Western and Eastern classical, rock 'n' roll). The album, from the pop-art packaging to the gapless track sequencing, successfully put forth the idea that music and art were synonymous. This deluxe set features alternate takes, new mixes, reprises, speeches, instrumentals, and other curiosities.

Surprisingly worth the money.

I also believed it was just going to be an exploit for them to make money but it actually sounds AMAZING.

First Gen Fan Reaction

If the sneak peek tunes are ANY indication, this is a dream come true for first-gen fans like myself, who almost cringe at the original Stereo mix, and essentially would only listen to the mono version, but Giles Martin has done the impossible here, which is take a crude 4 track stereo mix and replaced it with a mix that sounds current and relevant for today's listeners. Can't wait to hear the rest.
