The Beatles Alter Ego : Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Since its release in 1967, the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band has often been regarded as the single greatest rock album ever made, and one of the first rock concept albums. This 90-minute multimedia presentation observes and discusses the landmark album track by track, citing musical and historical precedents, and illustrating the development of the songs through excerpts from interviews with the band members and clips of discarded takes. Presenter Aaron Krerowicz is a professional Beatles scholar who won a research grant through the University of Hartford in 2011 to study the band and since has presented his findings through more than 300 presentations throughout the US and England.
