18) "The Mid-Morning Recording" The Beatles-'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'
What can be said that hasn't been said before. Every song is certainly a masterpiece, and every song is detailed in every way. How much does the process of recording and releasing an album owe to this collection of songs in particular? Microphones in pianos, lyrics on the sleeve, a gatefold one at that, badges, cut-outs, certainly too many to things to mention in a short paragraph. I do remember hearing this album very early in my life and along with the rest of the world, it left a big impression with me. It may not be my favorite album by them, but it certainly up there. It's amazing how good it sounds for a recording made forty years ago. So clean and well produced by the wonderful Sir George Martin. It is a classic much in the same sense of last week's album, 'Bitches Brew' by Miles Davis. No music was recorded quite the same after the release of this one. I figured as a compliment to tonights guests, The Spinto Band, that this was a fitting choice for tonight's M.M.R. When I first saw The Spinto Band live, I thought they looked like The Beatles during their early days of The Cavern Club. (May they have mobs of fans after them as well.) Played the day after the 40th anniversary of the release and presented on the main format of that time, glorious 12" vinyl!!! This one is also going out to me poppa, as he gave me this lovely re-released vinyl pressing a little while back. "Life flows on within you and without you."
