Sgt.Pepper turns 50 (part 2)
Beatles producer George Martin wrote in his memoir “It Happened on Abbey Road”: “For me the work represented a cut in the group's career because it marked the transition from a 'normal' rock and roll band to Artists who made a significant contribution to modern music history. It was a turning point - the turning point. Thanks to Sgt. Pepper, the art of recording changed from the mere recording of nice sounds to a medium that outlasts time as a valid art form - and creates a kind of sculpture of music. ”The highlight of the album is undoubtedly the grandiose final song“ A Day In The Life ”.

There are two albums that we cannot avoid today: 50 years ago the Beatles became “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band ". Today the album is a milestone in pop history and we are also concerned with this magazine. And still far from his later sound, but soon a celebrated star: David Bowie will release his debut on June 1st. This was pretty much lost in the hustle and bustle of Sgt.-Pepper, but only a few years later it became clear that the future belonged to him.


50 years of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band "(May 31, 2017)


For all those for whom musical exegesis is too idle, the album also offers high entertainment value on many other levels. Keyword: "Paul Is Dead" - one of the craziest conspiracy theories in pop history, which began in 1969 when a listener called the Detroit local broadcaster WKNR to announce that Paul McCartney was dead. He would have been killed in a car accident as early as 1966 and since "Sgt. Pepper ”represented by a doppelganger whom the Beatles cast in a McCartney lookalike competition under pressure from their management. According to the conspiracy theory, the three remaining Beatles have since tried to draw attention to Paul's death with secret signs and allusions: For example, the many personalities and flowers on the cover of “Sgt. Pepper “interpreted as evidence of a secret McCartney funeral. [...]

How often have you heard and read that, as a special award, as the highest praise, when a special album in the history of a band or a soloist was highlighted with the title of nobility: This is the "Sgt.-Pepper album from XY".

Ob-La-Di Madiba Ob-La-Da. Drake, Beatles, cultural appropriation
The Beatles practiced cultural appropriation - with good will, presumably - when they had a certain Desmond appear in one of their most hated songs: “Paul McCartney wrote the song around the time that highlife and reggae were beginning to become popular in Britain. The starting lyric, "Desmond has a barrow in the market-place", was a reference to the first internationally renowned Jamaican ska and reggae performer Desmond Dekker who had just had a successful tour of the UK. The tag line "ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah" was an expression used by Nigerian conga player Jimmy Scott-Emuakpor, an acquaintance of McCartney. "[...]

The revolver revolution
Fifty years ago (on August 5, 1966 to be precise) the magnificent Beatles album "Revolver" was released. The album title with the somewhat tired play on words was perhaps the only weak point of this outstanding album, which many critics rate even higher than the “Sgt. Pepper ”masterpiece, released a year later. Starting with the innovative cover, which Klaus Voormann had designed as a montage of drawings and photo collages, to creative exuberant music with a wealth of sound finesse and sound experiments that had not been heard before, "Revolver" set standards in the summer of 1966, that were not available to anyone in pop at the time.

I've seen the Beatles
In June 50 years ago, the Beatles were on their only tour of Germany and gave six concerts in three cities: Munich on June 24th, Essen on June 25th. and Hamburg on June 26th, 1966. And so it happened on June 25th, 50 years ago, that there was a lot of screaming in Essen's Grugahalle, the hall floor began to vibrate and several teenagers passed out when the Fab Four entered the stage and performed Chuck Berry's “Rock'n 'Roll Music' started. And the writer of these lines was present at this memorable event. Not as a case for the paramedics, not as a hysterical screamer, but as an ardent Beatles fan who would have liked to see more of his idols and, above all, heard more. [...]
