From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:24 pm on 23 June 2014

1967 was a huge year musically. The Beatles had stopped touring but released their 8th - and biggest - studio album to date. On June 1st, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was unleashed on an unsuspecting public, and spent 22 weeks at the top of the album chart. Time magazine declared it "an historic departure in the progress of music." It won four Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.
