“Sgt. Peppers” RAW! The Beatles Rock Out A Stripped Down Version Of The Title Track!

“I feel it, I feel it, oh baby now I feel it … Gotta be free now”

Sing it, John! This is a revelation for fans of The Beatles – a raw, stripped down take of “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” – just a couple of minutes of crunching guitar, great singing, and some really fun banter between Paul and John – the “I feel it” line, followed by Paul suggesting they still have more work to do!

Bravo To TheGuardian.com!

The Guardian has an amazing scoop – a raw version of the title track “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” – with some great banter between John and Paul at the end!

It’s part of the album’s 50th Anniversary Edition that comes out on May 26 – with the album newly mixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell, new notes from Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and – ready for this – 34 previously unreleased recordings!

Here’s how The Guardian describes this stripped-down version of the title track:

“Without the horn fanfare in the middle or the audience’s cheers and laughter, this version sounds pretty stripped back – and it features some trippy voices echoing around towards the end (“I feel it, I feel it, oh baby now I feel it … Gotta be free now”). Then there’s a brief conversation between John and Paul about singing technique, and some bits where Paul has run out of breath!”

This amazing new release follows another recent 50th anniversary for the band:

Some consider “Revolver” the seminal work for the group – but I love all of their work. Here is a look at the 50th anniversary of “Revolver”:
