Publisher: 498 Productions, LLC

Sgt. Pepperâs Lonely Hearts Club Band is the most famous album by the most famous band in the history of rock ânâ roll. It became the soundtrack for the Summer of Love (1967), with its music constantly flowing out of Hi-Fi systems, portable record players and radios throughout the world. That summer, people werenât just listening and dancing to Sgt. Pepper, they were discussing its music, its sounds, its lyrics and its remarkable cover. The attention to detail taken by The Beatles for every aspect of the album, from its recording down to the red and white psychedelic inner sleeve that held the vinyl disc, made Sgt. Pepper an all-encompassing and mind blowing experience collectively shared by millions.

The Beatles and Sgt. Pepper: A Fansâ Perspective is just that â" a book about Sgt. Pepper, written by fans for fans, compiled by Bruce Spizer, acclaimed Beatles author/historian and life-long first generation Beatles fan. In addition to essays written by Spizer, Al Sussman, Frank Daniels, Piers Hemmingsen and Bill King, the book contains dozens of fan recollections that add a personal touch demonstrating the true impact of the act weâve known for all these years, Sgt. Pepperâs Lonely Hearts Club Band.
