On 1st June, 1967 The Beatles released what would become the world's first concept album, SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. Described by Rolling Stone magazine as "The most important rock & roll album ever made..." the album not only changed the course of music but went on to become one of the biggest selling records of all time. Featuring interviews with former employees, fellow musicians, family members and journalists, and supported by a vast array of original and exclusive never-seen-before footage, the film offers a fascinating insight into the swinging sixties and the 12 months surrounding the album's release. Examining the band's disillusionment with touring, their changing relationship with manager, Brian Epstein, and the advent of the Summer Of Love, this star-studded rockumentary offers a fascinating insight into the creation and recording of one of the most ground-breaking and influential albums in pop history.
Why making a doc regarding a music album (one of the best known in music history) without having the music? This film about The Fab Four must cope with this lack and the outcome is disappointing, totally. With no access to songs and films of them in the studio, the result isn't pretty, given that the stories have been told, written and explained million of times. Things thus standing a much shorter footage might have been enough. On the other hand that's the 50th anniversary and another movie had to be expected after the Ron Howard's one but this one is only for Beatlemaniacs.. overlong also the finale devoted to Brian Epstein's death.
