It was 50 years ago today....Sgt Peppers 50th Anniversary edition: The beans are spilled

Thanks to Amazon US the details of the forthcoming Sgt Peppers 50th anniversary edition have been revealed while the Beatles.Com are still teasing us with their Beatle Colour bars

There will be a standard two disc edition - one disc featuring the album in stereo and the other in mono.

There is also going to be a money fleecing six disc edition which will include discs of out-takes and a DVD. The rich fan's edition will also include posters and a rather spiffing little book. While us Beatle fans who have families to feed will have to stick with the original album which, when all is said and done, is the real deal in any case.

The remastering of the Pepper's mix has been done by Giles Martin, son of original producer George Martin.

For months now rumours have been circulating that the songs Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane, which were originally recorded for the album but left off, would be restored to the running order but this doesn't seem to be the case.

The picture above was posted on Amazon.com with pre-order details for the original album while the official Beatles website was still teasing with the image below....whoops!!!

The Album will also be available on vinyl as well as the inevitable digital download.
Details have started to emerge as the Beatles prepare a 50th anniversary reissue of 1967’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – including a release date and information regarding various formats.
An expanded six-disc Super Deluxe Edition is being offered, as are two-CD, two-LP and single-disc configurations. There’s no word yet on what extras these sets will include, though rumors have abounded that the Beatles might restore both “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Penny Lane,” two standalone singles recorded during the same sessions.
George Martin, the Beatles’ longtime producer, was once quoted as saying that releasing that those two tracks four months before the arrival of Sgt. Pepper, rather than including them in the original running order, was “a truly terrible mistake.” However it shakes out, the set already has a fan in Ringo Starr, who was apparently very pleased with the sound of these polished-up four-track recordings.
George’s son Giles Martin is expected to oversee this much-anticipated reissue. He comes with his own Beatles-related credentials, having remastered 2016’s Live at the Hollywood Bowl. He also collaborated on the Cirque du Soleil production Love, the George Harrison documentary Living in the Material World and on Paul McCartney‘s most recent studio album, New.
The Sgt. Pepper Super Deluxe Edition is listed for $149.98, while the others range from $18.98-$38.98. They all share the same release date of May 26, 2017.
