As you may have heard, it was 40 years ago yesterday that the Beatles unleashed Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on an unsuspecting world.
And yes, I think it's a great record, and yes, I remember exactly where I was the first time I encountered it.
That's all I'm gonna say.
Over to you, kids.
As said kid, I'm almost blushing to tell you how old I was when this record came out: less than one. So I never really lived in a world without Sgt. Pepper. Despite the fact that it, in many ways, was the end of the Beatles' power pop period, it's just a mighty record.
And a short documentary.
Best line (from Ringo, natch): "It's a fine album, but I did learn to play chess on it."
