The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s was a masterpiece of timing.

The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band turns 50 years old this week, and to mark the occasion, Apple Records has trotted out a deluxe reissue set, the crown jewel of which is a new stereo remix of the album by Giles Martin, son of the late Sir George Martin. The younger Martin’s mix is a revelation: For Beatles obsessives and audiophiles, it accomplishes the feat of finally delivering a stereo mix that feels both sonically and spiritually true to the original mono mix. For casual Beatles fans unfamiliar with the album’s mono mix, which has been largely unavailable during the compact disc and post–compact disc eras, the experience may well be akin to hearing the album anew, with fresh ears and a revived appreciation for what all the hype was about.

Upon its release in 1967, Sgt. Sgt. Sgt. For the 40th anniversary of the Beatles’ celebrated album, Jody Rosen examined its myths and misconceptions. And no album was more instrumental than Sgt.

Pepper's recording sessions. The clip, premiered at The Guardian, is a stripped-down version of the album's opening title cut and includes some fantastic chatter between John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison. It's an unadorned and intimate version of the song that offers a glimpse into how The Beatles first imagined the track. Ennio Morricone - The Ecstasy of Gold - theremin & voice. Pudding. For example, in 1961, Bobby Lewis’s Tossin’ and Turnin’ spent 7 weeks at #1.

For all intents and purposes, Bobby Lewis was the Beyonce of 1961. Yet, have you heard of it? Do you know who Bobby Lewis is? Meanwhile, Etta James’ debut album dropped the same year, with At Last peaking on Billboard at #68. Music historians will regard Bobby Lewis as a pioneer in rock and roll and R&B, yet whatever led to Tossin’ and Turnin’s popularity in 1961 has faded over time. One hypothesis: Tossin’ and Turnin’s success had more to do than just the song...perhaps Bobby Lewis was a huge personality. But future generations don’t remember Bobby Lewis’s dancing and good looks.

And for this reason, it will be weird to hear future generations reverently listen to groups such as Nickelback – the kids only know their music, not what they culturally stood for in 2015.

The Fascinating Story of How Delia Derbyshire Created the Original Doctor Who Theme. We’ve focused a fair bit here on the work of Delia Derbyshire, pioneering electronic composer of the mid-twentieth century—featuring two documentaries on her and discussing her role in almost creating an electronic backing track for Paul McCartney’s “Yesterday.”

The Fascinating Story of How Delia Derbyshire Created the Original Doctor Who Theme

There’s good reason to devote so much attention to her: Derbyshire’s work with the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop laid the bedrock for a good deal of the sound design we hear on TV and radio today. And, as we pointed out previously, her electronic music, recorded under her own name and with the band White Noise, influenced “most every current legend in the business—from Aphex Twin and the Chemical Brothers to Paul Hartnoll of Orbital.” Along with documentaries and high praise in the music press, the late Derbyshire now has her own Exhibition at the Coventry Music Museum, as of December 6 of last year.

Freddie Mercury a capella. The Science Behind Why Freddie Mercury's Voice Was So Damned Compelling. Scientists have studied the voice and vocals of one of the greats of pop music, Freddie Mercury of the band Queen.

The Science Behind Why Freddie Mercury's Voice Was So Damned Compelling

And the results? 1) He used subharmonics in a way that very few people can. Other than Tuvan Throat Singers, that is: (Also, listen for the subtle melody that accompanies the low-throated growl in this clip). That subharmonic vibration also helped give him his "growl," which he used quite frequently. 2) His vocals chords simply moved faster than those of most people. 3) It's been widely reported that Mercury could sing through 4 octaves, but this study could not back that up; at 12 semitones per octave, that would be 48 semitones. 2 clicks for best Dylan covers.
