Das Beatles-Album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" adelte 1967 die Popkultukünstlerisch, technisch und musikalisch. Flashback und Ausblick mit Zeitgenossen und -kritikern!

Vor 50 Jahren erschien das erste Konzeptalbum der Musikgeschichte, „Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band“ von den Beatles. Es sollte alles verändern. Kaum zu glauben, dass sich die Welt heute für manche wieder rückwärts dreht. 

London - Unlängst hat Lukas Traxel, der Bassist des Zürcher Jean-Paul Brodbeck Trios, in Köln gastiert. Es seien, erzählte Traxel später, vergleichsweise viele Studenten im Konzert gewesen. Traxel ist selber noch Student, da merkt man das. Es war ein guter, ja ein sehr guter Abend, und tatsächlich gingen ein paar CDs weg hinterher, das ist schon bemerkenswert. Noch bemerkenswerter allerdings war die Erkenntnis, die den jungen Käufern erst kam, als sie dann das ganze Plastik schon bezahlt hatten: „Wo sollen wir die jetzt eigentlich abspielen?“ 

Traxel, Anfang Zwanzig, hat lieber etwas in der Hand, wenn er die Musik von anderen hört: CDs, noch lieber Schallplatten – und am liebsten Schallplatten, die eine eigene Geschichte haben. Schallplatten klingen ja jedes Mal anders. Sie sind unpraktisch, klar, und wer an den letzten Umzug denkt, kauft erstmal keine mehr. Andererseits: Man ist immer wieder verblüfft, wie viel Mühe sich die Menschen gegeben haben mit der inneren Logik oder der prunkenden Buntheit eines Kunstprodukts – und auf wie vielen Ebenen, allein vom Artwork her, der „Benutzer“ eingeladen wurde, sich geistig an den Kompositionen zu beteiligen.

It Was Fifty Years Ago Today! The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper & Beyond - OFFICIAL TRAILER {2:22}

Veröffentlicht am 06.04.2017
In UK cinemas from May 26

Available on Digital June 1 and DVD & Blu-ray June 5

On 1st June, 1967 The Beatles released their ground-breaking studio album, SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “The most important rock & roll album ever made…”, it left an indelible mark on the 60s and went on to become one of the biggest selling records of all time.

IT WAS FIFTY YEARS AGO TODAY! THE BEATLES: SGT. PEPPER & BEYOND examines the twelve months (Aug 1966 - Aug 1967) that would arguably be the most crucial in the band’s career, a year in which they stopped being the world’s number one touring band and instead became the world’s most innovative recording artists, pushing the boundaries of what could be achieved in the studio.

- We Still Need the Beatles, but… (Richard Goldstein, NYTimes, 18.06.1967, Zitat:)
The finished product reached the record racks last week; the Beatles had super vised even the album cover a mind-blowing collage of famous and obscure people, plants and artifacts. The 12 new compositions in the album are as elaborately con ceived as the cover. The sound is a pastiche of dissonance and lushness. The mood is mellow, even nostalgic. But, like the cover, the over-all effect is busy, hip and cluttered.
Like an over-attended child “Sergeant Pepper” is spoiled. It reeks of horns and harps, harmonica quartets, as sorted animal noises and a 41-piece orchestra; On at least one cut, the Beatles are not heard at all instrumentally. Sometimes this elaborate musical propwork succeeds in projecting mood. The “Sergeant Pepper” theme is brassy and vaudevillian. “She’s Leaving Home,” a melodramatic domestic saga, flows on a cloud of heavenly strings. And, in what is be coming a Beatle tradition, George Harrison unveils his latest excursion into curry and karma, to the saucy ac companiment of three tambouras, a dilruba, a tabla, a sitar, a table harp, three cellos and eight violins.
The obsession with production, coupled with a surprising shoddiness in composition, permeates the entire album. There is nothing beautiful on “Sergeant Pepper.” Nothing is real and thare is nothing to get hung about. The Lennon raunchiness has become mere caprice in “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite.” Paul McCartney’s soaring Pop magnificats have become merely politely pro found. “She’s Leaving Home” preserves all the orchestrated grandeur of “Eleanor Rigby,” but its framework is emaciated. This tale of a provincial lass who walks out on a repressed home life, leaving parents sobbing in her wake, is simply no match for those stately, swirling strings. Where “Eleanor Rigby” com pressed tragedy into poignant detail, “She’s Leaving Home” is uninspired narrative, and nothing more. By the third depressing hearing, it begins to sound like an immense put-on.

Ron Howard To Direct New Beatles Documentary Feature Film About The Band's Touring Years {5:05}

Los Angeles, July 16, 2014 -- Apple Corps Ltd., White Horse Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have announced they will produce a new authorized documentary for Apple, based on the first part of The Beatles' career -- the touring years.

The film will be directed by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard and will be produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.

White Horse's Grammy Award-winning Nigel Sinclair, Scott Pascucci and Academy Award winner and multiple nominee Brian Grazer of Imagine Entertainment will produce with Howard. Imagine's Michael Rosenberg and White Horse's Guy East will serve as executive producers.

Howard said, "I am excited and honored to be working with Apple and the White Horse team on this astounding story of these four young men who stormed the world in 1964. Their impact on popular culture and the human experience cannot be exaggerated."

This film will focus on The Beatles' journey from the early days of the Cavern Club in Liverpool and engagements in Hamburg to their last public concert in Candlestick Park, San Francisco, in 1966.

This is a video tribute extracted of the Pepper’s Project based on a deconstruction of the well know álbum cover of the World. The intention is to penetrate inside the audio and video elements of Set. Pepper, using the cover and some audio tracks to remix and play combinaciones to find interactive effects. Thanks to Ryohei Kanayama for collaboration on the audio mashup. It was 50 years ago today, amigos!

As the definitive snapshot of ‘60s pop culture (taken on March 30, 1967 by Michael Cooper at Chelsea manor Photo Studios), artist Peter Blake’s Sgt. Pepper cover was unlike anything the world had ever seen. The result was a collage bursting with color, texture, intellectual diversity, comedy, tragedy and time compressed. Even today, shrunk down to jewel case dimensions, the iconic design captures the eye and the imagination. And it came with a free cardboard mustache.

Folgende Berühmtheiten und Gegenstände sind auf dem Cover zu sehen (bei mehreren Erscheinungen Anzahl in Klammern)
Die gezeigten Doppelgänger entstammen Madame Tussauds Londoner Wachsfigurenkabinett. John Lennon hatte sich auch JesusElvis Presley und Adolf Hitler für das Cover gewünscht. Der vorbereitete Pappaufsteller von Hitler wurde aber während der Vorbereitungen für die Aufnahme nicht verwendet, da Bedenken wegen einer Kontroverse bestanden, die Beatles könnten ihn – und damit den Nationalsozialismus – verherrlichen wollen. Ein Abbild Jesu wurde erst gar nicht vorbereitet wegen des Presserummels nach Lennons Äußerung („Wir [die Beatles] sind populärer als Jesus“) wenige Monate zuvor. Mahatma Gandhi war auf der Originalaufnahme vertreten, wurde aber im fertigen Bild retuschiert, da EMI fürchtete, man würde die Band beschuldigen, sich über Gandhi lustig zu machen. Ebenfalls nachträglich entfernt wurde Schauspieler Leo Gorcey, da er für das Abbilden seines Konterfeis auf dem Albumcover Bezahlung erwartete. [Sgt.
