The Beatles: Sgt Pepper's Era

During 1967 flower power and psychedelic rock was in and The Beatles reflected that in their style and new album Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.  They dressed in satin military suits in bold colors for the album photo shoot and each of them grew a mustache and john started wearing his trademark round spectacles.  Sgt Pepper's is considered one of the greatest albums and is one of my favorite Beatles albums and I own the LP.  It's such a great album even after Brian Wilson heard it he had a mental breakdown.  Here are some photos of the Beatles during the Sgt Pepper's era

Wow I never knew about Brian Wilson having a breakdown! I do find the album quite sad sometimes, but also happy at others. It really is a great album and I think that era was also my favourite in Beatles fashion too! Great pics :)

I have to curse my 5 year old daughter because she just said, "Those are the Jonas Brothers!" at least 3 damned times. Children! Bless them father, for they know not what they do.
