    Part 7 of my "Do you own [insert album]?" series


    Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles' 8th studio album. The 12th best selling album of all time. Considered by some (including Rolling Stone) to be the greatest album of all time. Muse of possibly my most epic Photochop!

    I own it on mp3. Back in the olden days, I would just listen to my sister's vinyl version and never got around to buying my own hard copy.

    Yes, I own a copy of all the Beatles studio albums on CD. The Beatles 2nd album was the first record (on vinyl) I ever purchased back in the 60's (before the earth cooled)
  8. Yes, but it is far from my favorite Beatles album. I like about half.

    I have a hell of a time hearing the last track, but my dog goes nuts for some reason. ;)

    Not much classic rock, obviously, although my wife owns a few. Lots of bebop, post-bop, fusion, world music, and quite a few live or studio discs of various bands I've mixed or hung out with over the years. I can hear and/or play classic rock anytime on the radio or at open mikes, and being 60 I kind of got my fill when those albums weren't "oldies."

    If I were going to buy a Beatles album it'd be Revolver or Rubber Soul, most likely. ;)
  10. Couldn't resist. :D

    Perhaps the strongest back-to-back offerings of any group in the history of pop music. Get both.

    Okay, but you never owned any of the albums back in the olden days? Also, Jaco's albums kind of fits in the fusion category.

    ...and Abbey Road is my favorite Beatles album! :)

    "Rubber Soul" is my favorite.

    (But, in my opinion, all of their albums are essential.)

    Anyway, I do own "Sgt. Pepper"... and I once got to fondle an LP copy which had been signed by McCartney. It was literally kept in a vault at radio station WBCN-FM (in Boston). :smug:

    I don't wait 30 minutes after eating, to go swimming.
    If I never hear the beetles again, I'll be a happy camper. Enough was too much 20+ years ago aw-ready!

    If you ask about former ownership of the Woodstock-ish bands' output, sure, I owned quite a few up to the mid-70s or so. None on your list so far though.

    I really prefer Jaco's work with Pat Metheny or Joni Mitchell to his solo sides.

    I've always been more wired into live performances than recordings if the artists in question are still alive. I can see that changing as I get older though.

    I to have the entire Beatles collection on CD. I really like A Hard Day's Night the best with Abbey Road a close second.

    Pepper is a masterpiece. Has been since '67.

    Yep... I've got it.

    Yes, of course...Revolver is my favourite, though that orchestral/chromatic climb in "A Day In The Life" puts lead in my pencil every time, if you get my drift.
