Commemorating The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper

Postby KarenZ » Sat Jun 02, 2007 2:11 pm

Folks,

There's been much hoopla in the news this past week and I would be remiss by not acknowledging that it was 40 years ago today that The Beatles released what Rolling Stone has ranked the #1 album of all time: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I remember it well. I had graduated from high school just 7 days earlier... and it was the Summer of Love. The album won 4 Grammys that year - including Album of the Year.

The link below to the Wikipedia article will take you on a musical journey....

"Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

Oddly enough....as a youth....I used to try and imagine what some of musical heroes - like the beatles - would be doing when they got old. Would they still be doing it when they got older I often wondered?

I bring this up since Paul's new album has just dropped in Starbuck's coffee shops everywhere and while i got really nostalgic about him and his days with the "fab four" and felt thankful he's still around and makin music all these years later - for some reason I can't picture myself laying down the 15 bucks for his new record - which I hear is actually quite good.

Anyone else suffering this dilemma?

Also, if you have heard the new one, kindly add a few words here.

I just bought Instant Karma, The Amnesty International Campaign To Save Darfur

It is a compilation of John Lennon songs, performed by current artists.

Aerosmith does Give Peace A Chance, U2 performs Instant Karma and Green Day sings Working Class Hero.
