Notably: The Beatles’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was released on this day in 1967 after 700 hours and $100,000 of studio work ($900,000 in today’s dollars). “The 12 new compositions in the album are as elaborately conceived as the cover,” Richard Goldstein wrote in his review for The Times. The sound is a pastiche of dissonance and lushness. The mood is mellow, even nostalgic. But, like the cover, the over-all effect is busy, hip and cluttered. Like an over-attended child “Sergeant Pepper” is spoiled. It reeks of horns and harps, harmonica quartets, assorted animal noises and a 91-piece orchestra. On at least one cut, the Beatles are not heard at all instrumentally. […] The obsession with production, coupled with a surprising shoddiness in composition, permeates the entire album. There is nothing beautiful on “Sergeant Pepper.” Nothing is real and there is nothing to get hung about.” Well, it looks like a few listeners and rock history did not agree.
Now this: It wasn’t on the album, but it was just as groundbreaking that same year.
