18 July: "The Beatles' Alter Ego, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" at the St. John's Wood Library
Tomorrow will mark my fifth and final English presentation (at least during this tour):
Saturday, 18 July 2015, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
St John's Wood Library, 20 Circus Road, London, NW8 6PD, United Kingdom
The Beatles' Alter Ego, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Since its release in 1967, the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has often been regarded as the single greatest rock album ever made, and one of the first rock concept albums. This 60-minute multimedia presentation will observe and discuss the landmark album track by track, citing musical and historical precedents, and illustrating the development of the songs through excerpts from interviews with the band members and clips of discarded takes.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
