As I gear up for the fast approaching 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, I will be highlighting some very cool new books to add to your library.
Today marks exactly fifty years that one of the most seminal rock albums in history was released (in the UK), Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. Many events around the world are celebrating the fact and books are being published examining the cultural aspects that the album seemingly ushered in that Summer. The just released Sgt. Pepper at Fifty via Sterling Publishing is one that takes a look at various aspects surrounding The Beatles’ masterpiece through sections as explained in it’s subtitle The Mood, the Look, the Sound, and the Legacy. Lavishly illustrated, the book goes into detail not only the making of the album, but also the seismic shift in pop music and fashion it stirred. Relive the magical Summer of Love fifty years later with this detailed book.
