May 26, 1967: The Beatles released their eighth album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” in the UK. The album took over 700 hours to record and cost $75,000 to produce. It would spend 22 weeks at the top of the UK albums chart and received almost unanimous acclaim from Britain’s pop press; Peter Jones of Record Mirror said the album was “clever and brilliant, from raucous to poignant and back again”, while Disc and Music Echo’s reviewer called it “a beautiful and potent record, unique, clever, and stunning”. In The Times, William Mann described Sgt. Pepper as a “pop music master-class.”
The album would be released in the US one week later.
