In 1967, June 1 was the day when The Beatles released their very important and innovative album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

When this album was recorded, The Beatles had stopped touring because of the fans. They got a lot more time to prepare their new record which led to the fact that they started experimenting and evolve their musical interests. That is probably the numer one reason why Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band became so innovative and have been so influencial to other artist. One example is Jimi Hendrix who the same day the album was released performed a cover on the song with the same name.
