TV Times - - Film Guide -

fifty years af­ter its re­lease, The Bea­tles’ Sgt pep­per’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is still con­sid­ered to be one of the most in­no­va­tive and in­spi­ra­tional al­bums of all time. With help from the master tapes, com­poser and pre­sen­ter Howard Goodall shows us the ‘in­ven­tions and rein­ven­tions’ which came about af­ter the band had stopped tour­ing and were free to make mu­sic that didn’t need to be repli­cated on stage. The bril­liance of pro­ducer Ge­orge Martin and en­gi­neer Ge­off Em­er­ick, The Bea­tles’ mu­si­cal cu­rios­ity and Ge­orge Har­ri­son’s in­ter­est in In­dian cul­ture all play a part in the re­sult­ing mind-blow­ing tapestry. As Howard says: ‘Awe­some’.
