Deconstructing the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Rolling Stone described Sgt. Pepper as the most important rock ‘n’ roll album ever made, an unsurpassed adventure in concept, sound, songwriting, cover art, and studio technology by the greatest rock & roll group of all time. This filmed lecture by Beatles expert Scott Freiman (illustrated with rare audio and video clips) will give you a behind-the-scenes, making-of look at how the innovative, critically acclaimed, and popular album was assembled, how the cover art was created, and how this legendary and groundbreaking album fit in at the time with the Beatles’ own trajectory as a band and their and the album’s immediate predecessors, contemporaries, and successors.
