Record Album, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," 1967

Summary

Through the remainder of the 1960s, many Beatles records were trendsetters -- but none more so than their 1967 "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album. By the time the Beatles recorded "Sgt. Pepper," they were beginning to incorporate a variety of new influences in their music, including a broader range of instruments -- including an Indian sitar -- and innovative recording techniques.
