The Beatles: "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"
Can you name all of the cultural stars depicted on this album cover?
So widely known and wildly popular, I doubt my ability to add anything enlightening to the decades of commentary and accolades lavished on this LP. Released in 1967, this album went 11x Platinum, eclipsed in sales only by "Abbey Road" and "The Beatles" (the 'white album').
Click on the gatefold picture to get a great closer look at the Fab Four in their colorful "military" attire.
Paul's back to the camera, fueling the rumors of his untimely demise that continued with "signs" on other LPs to follow.
Album insert that featured punch-out moustache and chevrons.
This LP went to a fan in Texas.
