Forgotten Hits: March 30th

Forgotten Hits: March 30th: The Beatles' new album cover is photographed today by Michael Cooper (from a design by Peter Blake).  "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" will become a landmark release that influences virtually everything recorded after it.  (Manager Brian Epstein did not like the new LP cover and at one point wrote a note to The Fab Four that simply said "Brown Paper Bags for 'Sgt. Pepper'".  Ironically, John Lennon packaged his first solo album, "Two Virgins" that way a year later.)
