Musical Interlude ► Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band

The greatest LP of the entire Rock era was released 45 years ago today. The Beatles masterpiece was a revelation, a concept album with a gatefold cover (already done by Frank Zappa, tho’), cool cut-outs, and the lyrics printed right on the back cover!!!

I listened to it over and over again when it was brand new, just like all my friends. Every listen seemed to bring something new to the ears.

There have been many interpretations over the years, including a recent Cheap Trick Sgt. Pepper performed completely live. However, the best interpretation is one I have already spoken about in these pages. Here’s Easy Star All-Stars performing the entire LP as “Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band” with many special guest stars.

As always…CRANK IT UP!!!
