‘Sgt. Pep­per’s tops in Bri­tain

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - BREAKING NEWS: 423-757-NEWS -

LON­DON — The Bea­tles’ psy­che­delic mas­ter­work “Sgt. Pep­per’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” has been named the most pop­u­lar Bri­tish al­bum in his­tory.

The Of­fi­cial Charts Com­pany said Satur­day that the band’s 1967 clas­sic is Bri­tain’s fa­vorite al­bum based on phys­i­cal sales, down­loads and streams in the U.K.

The al­bum found the four mates from Liver­pool at their most ex­per­i­men­tal and in­ven­tive and in­cludes fa­vorites such as “With a Lit­tle Help from My Friends” and “A Day in the Life.”

The band by then had stopped tour­ing and was fo­cus­ing its ef­fort on stu­dio work un­der the guid­ance of pro­ducer Ge­orge Martin.

The al­bum came ahead of Adele’s “21,” which fin­ished sec­ond, and the 1995 Oa­sis al­bum “(What’s the Story) Morn­ing Glory?”
