The Making of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Since I'm spending my weekend listening to four different versions of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - UK stereo LP, US mono LP, and the new 2009 stereo/mono remasters, I wanted to share this terrific video documentary from 1992. George Martin and the surviving Beatles discuss the making of the greatest album of all time. Very interesting and very fun.
Oh, and just to hype the product one more time, the 2009 remasters are absolutely spectacular. If compact discs always sounded this good, there would be no need of a vinyl revival. As such, my Parlaphone stereo LP sounds the best, but good luck finding a copy without spending a fortune.
