Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Vinyl Album

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (commonly known as Sgt. Pepper) is the eighth studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. Released in June 1967 the album, which included songs such as "With a Little Help from My Friends", "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "A Day in the Life", has sold more than 30 million copies, making it one of the world's best selling albums. Its release brought the idea of a concept album to the general public. Continuing the artistic maturation seen on the Beatles' previous album Revolver (1966), Sgt. Pepper represented a departure from the conventional pop rock idiom of the time and incorporated balladry, psychedelic, music hall and symphonic influences. During the Sgt. Pepper recording sessions, the Beatles improved upon the production quality of their recordings while exploring experimental techniques. The producer George Martin's innovative approach included the use of an orchestra. Widely acclaimed and imitated, the album cover, designed by English pop artists Peter Blake and Jann Haworth, was inspired by a sketch by Paul McCartney that depicted the band posing in front of a collage of some of their favourite historic figures and celebrities. Sgt. Pepper was a critical and commercial success, spending 27 weeks at the top of the UK Album Chart and 15 weeks at number one on the US Billboard 200. A seminal work in the emerging psychedelic rock style, the album was critically acclaimed upon release and won four Grammy Awards in 1968. Sgt. Pepper is considered by many to be the most influential and famous rock album ever recorded. In 1994 Colin Larkin ranked it second in his All Time Top 1000 Albums list and in 2005 Rolling Stone placed it at number one in their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The album was added to the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress in 2003, calling it "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Both the album cover and the vinyl album are in great condition. The inner sleeve is the original sleeve that came with the album. The album cover opens to show a group photo of the Beatles. Also included is the original Sgt. Pepper Cut-Outs - moustach, picture card, stripes, badges, and stand up.
