About the Authors
  • Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) represents the highpoint of the recording career of the Beatles. This is a detailed study of this album, and it demonstrates how serious discussion of popular music can be undertaken without failing either the approach or the music. Dr. Moore considers each song individually, tying his analysis to the recorded performance on disk, rather than the printed music. He focuses on the musical quality of the songs and the interpretations offered by a range of commentators. He also 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.

    • This is the first detailed study to be made of this album, the recording highlight of the Beatles' recording career
    • Demonstrates how serious discussion of popular music can be undertaken without failing either the music or the approach
    • Contains a discussion of each song and describes the context in which the album was written
    • Thirty years ago this year that the album was brought out - album receiving a lot of media attention already
