Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Iconic Record Cover 1967
The Beatles Made Many Albums, and Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band With its Striking Picture of Famous People is Probably the Most Popular
The first version of this very collectable record was brought out in Mono, and was a coloured version. The one I have is the Stereophonic version, with a plain black record. It was brought out in 1967 and the Reference is YEX.637, PCS 7027.
The colorful military uniforms worn by the famous four really seemed to strike a note in the 1960s era, and it started, or continued, a craze for youngsters to buy up every military jacket they could find, to wear for parties and generally to pose in (a bit like the later crazes for punk clothes and, more recently, that extraordinary garment the Onesie). At that time, Carnaby Street in Central London was the hub of all things related to pop culture fashions, and it was great fun to visit and see all these weird and wonderful people prancing around in their outfits, and to hear the sound of music emanating from all the shops.
My particular record is in very good condition, and the cover looks good too. The inside sleeve is in pristtine condition and there is a card inside, with pictures of the Beatles and Sgt Pepper himself.
I have written this web page to show you the marvellous and somewhat novel way the record cover was all put together.
Oh, and by the way, if anyone would like to buy the Sgt Pepper record from me, I would be happy to sell it, as I have had it for 45 years, and would like to give someone else a turn now - I haven't played it for years, although I must confess, I do fish it out and look at it now and then.

Whilst on the subject of music and record labels, this is a photo of my prized Nipper ornament listening intently to music from the phonogram, set up to look a bit like the famous advertisement.
if you like the photo of Nipper the Dog with Phonogram, I took a close-up photo of them, and that's what I used to decorate products in my Zazzle shop - see below:
