Beatles' Sgt. Pepper Tribute Album Released

Published: 2007-04-10
We are approaching the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and a radio production will be released to recognize the achievements of the CD.

The Beatles album hit the airwaves June 1, 1967. To give thanks to the inspiring CD artists both from the UK and US will release covers of the tracks from the album on June 2 on the BBC2 airwaves. The artists who are participating include Oasis, The Killers, Kaiser Chiefs, Razorlight, and James Morrison.

The engineer for the BBC program will even be using the same equipment the Beatles used during their recording sessions. Controller of Radio 2, Lesley Douglas, spoke about her excitement, "This will be not only a unique radio event, but a very special musical moment. The range of quality artists involved ensures that this will be a fitting tribute to one of the great albums of all time."
