Hard on the heels of ‘Rubber Soul’ and ‘Revolver’ comes ‘Sgt, Pepper’s…’, The Beatles’ 8th album and many consider their best. In fact Sgt. Pepper was still at Number 1 in the album charts when ‘The Magical Mystery Tour’ came out! Just think how Sgt. Pepper would have gone down if ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ and ‘Penny Lane’ had got on the final cut!
Stardust and more recently Bono’s ‘The Fly’
