Found this online. Not sure if this is good news for Beatles fans or not, but no one can deny that Sgt Pepper certainly was a groundbreaking album for the Fab Four. The greatest shift musically in their output came from the Sgt Pepper album because Revolver was more of a transition album from the short sweet poppy songs to the more experimental sound. Sgt Pepper fully focuses on the more psychedelic sounds.

Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, a groundbreaking masterwork that became popular music’s most universally acclaimed album. To salute the occasion, The Beatles will release a suite of lavishly presented ‘Sgt. Pepper’ Anniversary Edition packages on May 26 (Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe). The album is newly mixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio and expanded with early takes from the studio sessions, including no fewer than 34 previously unreleased recordings.
“It’s crazy to think that 50 years later we are looking back on this project with such fondness and a little bit of amazement at how four guys, a great producer and his engineers could make such a lasting piece of art,” says Paul McCartney in his newly-penned introduction for the ‘Sgt. Pepper’ Anniversary Edition.
