40 years ago today

BBC Radio 2 had a bunch of modern bands play songs from Sgt. Pepper, with mostly good results (I’ve never heard of “The Magic Numbers” who massacre “She’s Leaving Home”, and I hope never to again. The rest of the bands including Travis and The Stereophonics do good though). It’s on YouTube in 4 parts: 1 (Sgt. Pepper, A Little Help From My Friends), 2 (Getting Better, Fixing a Hole), 3 (She’s Leaving Home, Lovely Rita), and 4 (Sgt. Pepper Reprise).
