Album Remarks & Appraisals:
American pop group Cheap Trick, in a reprisal of their widely successful sold-out concerts, salute the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' seminal Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album with a dynamic track-by-track rendition that features the New York Philharmonic orchestra, an Indian music ensemble and an array of several very special guests. At the helm is none other than the legendary Geoff Emerick, who engineered the Fab Four's definitive album in 1967, and brings an exciting authenticity to the celebration. Cheap Trick genuinely infuse their brand of Beatlesque power pop into a live tribute that pays homage to their musical influences, by capturing the essence of an album that changed music history.
