It was 50 years ago this June 1, 2017, when The Beatles' John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr astonished and delighted the world, ushering in the Summer of Love with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a groundbreaking masterwork.

Named the Greatest Album of All Time by Rolling Stone, Sgt Pepper celebrates its 50th Anniversary with a new 2017 stereo mix and 5.1 surround audio. To create the stereo mix, producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell worked at Abbey Road Studios in London using the original 4 track masters. The Expanded 180-gram 2LP vinyl package adds a second LP with previously unreleased alternate takes for each of the album's 13 songs, newly mixed in stereo and sequenced in the same order as the album.

"It's crazy to think that 50 years later we are looking back on this project with such fondness and a little bit of amazement at how four guys, a great producer and his engineers could make such a lasting piece of art," says Paul McCartney in his newly-penned introduction for the Sgt. Pepper Anniversary Edition.

This is the first time Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has been remixed and presented with additional session recordings, and it is the first Beatles album to be remixed and expanded since the 2003 release of Let It Be... Naked. All of the Anniversary Edition releases include Martin's new stereo mix of the album, which was sourced directly from the original four-track session tapes and guided by the original, Beatles-preferred mono mix produced by his father, George Martin.

Features:
• 180-gram vinyl
• 2LP

This is a remix as well as a remaster, and a brilliant one at that. It places Pepper in a more modern stereo landscape, and gives it a startling new clarity and energy. This really is the best version I've heard to date - a number of key elements come into sharper focus, and Ringo's drums finally get the spotlight they deserve. I hope they do the same treatment to the rest of the stereo collection, because if this is any indication, I'd buy them all.
