Landmark Beatles album turned 50 years old over the weekend

If you were to poll Beatles fans about their fave Fab Four album, it’d be a safe bet “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” would be at or near the top. The landmark album turned 50 years old. To help commemorate this event, today’s Shadow features the Pride and Joy of Rockford, Illinois–Cheap Trick–covering ‘Lovely Rita’ from their legendary Hollywood Bowl performance of ‘Pepper’ in 2007. And because it’s The Beatles, fiercely protective of their music, you won’t find a regular version of ‘Lovely Rita’ on You Tube.
