This is an excellent sounding '70s UK copy with the gatefold cover in beautiful condition. There are no shortage of strong opinions about where to find the ultimate Beatles sound. I make no claims to possess the ultimate answer, but since I've played literally hundreds of copies of every Beatles album over the course of my career I feel qualified to say this is a great copy. It's very rich and full-bodied, definitely a step up from so many pressings out there. With so many records to play I never feel like I need to put Sgt. Pepper's on, but every time I do it's a great reminder of why this album is so beloved. And enjoying a copy this impressive is always a treat, no matter how many times you've heard this music.
5 stars Allmusic (shocking, right?): "It's possible to argue that there are better Beatles albums, yet no album is as historically important as this."
Vinyl: VG+ (light superficial wear)
Cover: EX (really nice!)
Play notes: Excellent sound, side two has a slightly noisy intro and some noise during the fade out of the last song
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
