Those few folks here who've known me for a long time know how much of a Beatles fan I am. My parents weren't big pop music listeners, so it took me a little while to discover the Fab Four, only to disciver just how many Beatle songs I'd first heard as cover versions when I was very young. Eventually I got my first Beatle album as a Christmas present -- 1976 or '77 it was. And that album was Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

According to the Beatles website and EMI's records, the official UK release date of this album was the 1st of June, 1967. Which makes today its Official 50th Birthday.

Sgt Pepper is, in the end, not my *favorite* Beatles album, but it still gets my vote as their *Greatest* album, and in my opinion the most important album ever. So I've been listening as I can today (my abilities are currently limited in that regard) and wish everyone a Happy Sgt Pepper Day.
