Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is the eighth studio album by English rock band the Beatles. Released on 26 May 1967 in the United Kingdom and 2 June 1967 in the United States, it was an immediate commercial and critical success, spending 27 weeks at the top of the UK albums chart and 15 weeks at number one in the US. On release, the album was lauded by the vast majority of critics for its innovations in music production, songwriting and graphic design, for bridging a cultural divide between popular music and high art, and for providing a musical representation of its generation and the contemporary counterculture. It won four Grammy Awards in 1968, including Album of the Year, the first rock LP to receive this honour.

This video shows the perceptive and thought process of those who made possibly the best album of all time. This insightful video featuring the likes of producer George Martin, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr breaks down the making of each song of the album, starting with the albums prelude of the double track featuring Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever, and ending with with the almost mystical last song of the album, A Day in the Life. What I found most interesting about the video was how George Martin has us listen to individual instruments or voices in a song then connects them all together to show how they all fit together to make some of the greatest music of all time.
