Vinyl love: The Beatles “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: The Beatles
Album Title: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
Year released: 1967
Year reissued: 2012
Details: black vinyl, 180 gram, stereo remaster, gatefold sleeve, paper cutouts


The skinny: The fab four’s eighth studio album is a classic, revolutionary for its studio production, songwriting, and artwork, and a must have in any vinyl collection.

Standout track: “A day in the life”

    1. Agreed on both counts. I love how the copy I bought came with replicas of the original cutouts plus an explanation of the cover. Still my favourite Beatles album.

      1. I heard that there’s a version of the record that is the rarest in the world. The Beatles faces were replaced by Capitol records execs and only 100 were produced.

  1. Not one to court controversy, but this is the only Beatles album I care to own on vinyl. I acknowledge their influence and I like a lot of their songs, but I just never choose to listen to them that often.

    1. I understand. I used to listen to them a lot more than I do now. When I first started collecting vinyl, my wife offered to buy me the stereo masters box set as a birthday gift but I told her there were only a few of their records I would want to own. This is one of them.

  2. I’ll be getting to the Beatles in my series of all my records soon enough. Pretty sure I know all of the songs on here already, but I’m not the world’s biggest Beatles fan to begin with, so it’ll be interesting to see what I think of it!

    Somewhere here I have an old original LP copy of this…
