On May 26th, 1967, the sensational rock band, The Beatles released its eighth studio album, spending not one, or two but a whopping 27 weeks on the UK Albums Chart. This unseemly act by The Beatle’s exciting experimentation with orchestral overdubs and a range of sound effects with the prowess of producer George Martin made for a critically acclaimed album that not only supplemented devotion for its already faithful following but is described as a hallmark in rock music. The album art designed and made by pop artists, Jann Haworth and Peter Blake was also unorthodox, with the background holding some of the quartet’s heroes, celebrities of the time and some rather odd people too.
