The eighth studio album by the Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was released in 1967 becoming an immediate commercial and critical success. It topped the UK albums chart for 27 weeks and US charts for 15 weeks. It won four Grammy Awards in 1968, including Album of the Year making it the first rock LP to receive this honour.
Described as one of the first art rock LPs, it aided the development of progressive rock and was credited with marking the beginning of the Album Era. An important work of British psychedelia, the album incorporates a range of stylistic influences including vaudeville, circus, music hall, avant-garde, and Western and Indian classical music.
In 2003, the Library of Congress placed Sgt. Pepper in the National Recording Registry, honouring the work as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" while Rolling Stone magazine ranked it number one in its list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".
The cover depicts the band posing in front of a tableau of celebrities and historical figures and was designed by the British pop artists Peter Blake and Jann Haworth. Having sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, it is one of the best-selling albums in history.
