Overview

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) represents the highpoint of the recording career of the Beatles. This is the first detailed study to be made of this or any other such album, and it demonstrates how serious discussion of popular music can be undertaken without either the approach or the music. Dr Moore considers the musical qualities of each song and describes the context in which the album was written - both within the career of the group itself and within the development of popular music globally, both before and since.
