Sgt. Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band

This unusual disc was auctioned on eBay in May 2004. The auction description offers absolutely no info regarding the disc's origin. Perhaps it comes from Australia.

I find the description quite humorous. Anyone interested in owning this disc would already know the info stated.

COMMENTS: Formed in Liverpool, England by Lennon and McCartney as The Quarrymen in 1957 while they were still at school. In 1958 Harrison joined but they split in late 1959. In 1960, they reformed as The Silver Beatles, and added Pete Best and Stu Sutcliffe. A short time later they dropped the "Silver" from their name. Later in 1960 they toured Hamburg, West Germany but had to return because Harrison was deported for being under 18. They debuted at "The Cavern Club" in Liverpool on 21.3.61 and then returned to Hamburg for another 3 months.

Many rock critics recommend the following as essential listening. "Sgt. Pepper"s Lonely Hearts Club Band", "Revolver", "The Beatles (White Album)", "The Beatles 1967-70", "The Beatles 1962-66", "Live at the BBC", "Rubber Soul", "Please Please Me", "With the Beatles", "A Hard Day's Night", "Beatles For Sale", "Help", "Abbey Road", "Let it Be".
