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.)

Album Title: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
Year released: 1967
Year reissued: 2012

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”

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.

Haha! That’s hilarious. Still think I would prefer to own the copy with the actual faces of The Beatles though.

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.

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.

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…
