Sgt. Pepper as a Double Album
« on: September 05, 2008, 03:29:02 AM »

What do you think would have happened if The Beatles released everything they made in 1967 as a double-LP? Would it have been a masterpiece or a total disaster? I think the track listing would have been something like this:

Side A:
1.     Sgt. Pepper

It couldn't be released by June 1st, 1967 of course, for a lot of songs were not even recorded. It is more an overview of 1967 rather than an extended Sgt Pepper.

Well, as for the Sgt. Pepper's double album thing, would it still have it's magic? I mean, all of The Beatles albums have some sort of magic, but there's something about Sgt. Pepper's that makes it... *weird hand movement* weird and still, you can feel the magic running through you.

Eithter way, I'd buy it!

I dont really see the point... but it will certainly be something not done before (or not often done before) .....
I think each album tells a story... so  the Sgt P album has a story to it, the songs are related and all that. The same goes for all the rest albums...
Keep it to a one sided album, i'd say.

I really don't see the point. All you've done is put everything from 1967 on to a double album. Shall we have Please Please Me and With The Beatles as a double album as well? Actually, they go together better than all of the '67 stuff!

There's certainly an argument to be made that "Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields Forever" belong on Sgt Pepper, but songs like "All Together Now" and "Flying" are throwaways, and "It's Only A Northern Song" is actually a Pepper sessions reject. As a rule of thumb- and this is just a personal crotchet, really- I prefer a focused single album to a sprawling double, especially one that would have to be loaded with filler. :)

Well, I tend to stay away from calling anything 'filler' or a 'reject' because it might be that way to one person, and not to another. I've also learned that sometimes one misses what's special or interesting about a song, only to discover it much later.

Anyway, I listened to pepper from end to end in a slow traffic jam once, and somehow my mood, the album, the hum of my engine, the warm morning, and my cup of coffee all worked together to create one of the most intense listening experiences I've ever had.  I was completely focused and immersed in the music. Everything flowed and worked perfectly. I seemed to deeply experience every note played, every sound made, every pluck of every string, every word sang and every knob turned. It was surreal. I am convinced that I heard that album in the same context as teenagers did 30 years before.

For the person who asked about the "double album"... If you even had even the tiniest notion about  what I'm saying here, you wouldn't have even asked the question.
