Like the list - but could you physically put this number of songs on a piece of vinyl in 67?
And 3 Paul songs in a row?

There's two number 7's, but it shouldn't be a problem. Prior to Sgt Pepper all Beatles albums, with the exception of A Hard Day's Night, had 14 songs on it.

Damn you're right. Seems a 33 1/3 LP can take between 45 and 52 minutes. That BIG Pepper has 44.18 minutes on it.
Not that I checked or anything.

The total running time of The White Album is just over 92 mins, so it would have been possible.

Of course Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane are better than many songs on Sgt Pepper.

But still I wouldn't wanna change the album.

One thing I love about this bands is their amazing ability to release great singles that didn't have to be on an album (ok these two songs ended up on mmt but you get what I mean)

These two songs together is one of the best singles ever released. And Sgt Pepper is still a great album. I think sometimes people concentrate too much on that Beatles was a great album band, but to me they were just as much of a great singles band.

They mastered both areas in magnificent ways.

They could release an amazing album as TWA and still keep Hey Jude and Revolution as single tracks only.

Same goes with the brilliant Rubber Soul that had We Can Work It Out and Day Tripper as single tracks only.

And the list goes on and on.

The Beatles are both the best album band ever but also the best single band ever.
So I wouldn't wanna change Sgt Pepper even if I could revise history.

The Stereo remaster is 39:50
Strawberry Fields Forever is 4:10
Penny Lane is 3:03

I make that 47:03.

I think it would make a great album, although I'm not sure where the tracks should go. I read somewhere that George Martin later thought that leaving them off the album was "a dreadful mistake".

The longest single LP I can think of is Todd Rundgren's Initiation, coming in at a whopping 67:34.

i wasn't around when it came out but from watching documentaries, etc, i got the impression that SFF/PL served as a preview for the new direction of Beatles music.
it whet the publics appetite/curiosity and placated them with new material while they waited for pepper  . . . arguably, pepper might not have hit the public consciousness the same way if that double A side hadn't served as a 'teaser' to break the new sound a bit at a time

even movies have previews + coming attractions to build public interest and start a gradual momentum

the pre-pepper SFF/PL single release was a perfectly timed marketing masterstroke

A-side:
1. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
2. With A Little Help From My Friends
3. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
4. Getting Better
5. Fixing A Hole
6. She's Leaving Home
7. Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite

B-side:
1. Within You Without You
2. When I'm Sixty Four
3. Strawberry Fields Forever
4. Penny Lane
5. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (reprise)
6. A Day In The Life

I'd simply put "Strawberry Fields" and "Penny Lane" in the places of "Lovely Rita" and "Good Morning Good Morning" (in my opinion, the weaker tracks on the album).
