Beatles in Newsday

Capitol Records butchered the Beatles' recordings in the US until the group insisted "Sgt. Pepper's" could not be tampered with...


I read the news today, oh boy... (sorry, couldn't resist that!) Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was released in the United States on June 1, 1967. Long Island Newsday remembered... "It Was 40 Years Ago… No one outranks Sgt. Pepper" But, the best is not to be found in Newsday: you must go to the blogosphere "It's Sgt. Sully's Beatles Look Back Chat" blogged by the fellow who co-hosted Newsday's Beatles Listening Party.

People sometimes wonder what all the hubbub was about the Beatles. If you've never heard them and you listen today, you're taken aback by the sound: especially through the group's REVOLVER album, there is an oddity about the sound that makes you want to listen to the songs over again, which may account for the Beatles' incredible mid-1960s chart-topping popularity. Take a look at some of the sheet music: guitarists will note many chords and arrangements of chords not used often in popular music. [continued]

  1. I can't believe it was 40 years ago that Sgt. Peppers was released. I found this good article about it here: http://www.thenewsroom.com/details/351668/Life+and+Leisure?c=20191

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
