If you’ve been plugged into any social media the last few days, you probably couldn’t escape the news about the new remix of The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album.
I’ll be straight with you: I haven’t heard it yet.
My only opportunities since its release on Friday (May 26, 2017) would have minimized it to background music. And that just won’t do the album justice.
I want to experience it when I can really focus on it. I want to wear some good headphones, I want to let the sounds wash over me, I want the music to conjure visions and tickle my imagination.
I hope to be transported to the same Neverland (or Pepperland) that a very young me visited when I first delved into the Fab Four’s 1967 masterwork.
