American pop group Cheap Trick, in a reprisal of their wildly successful sold-out concerts, salute the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' seminal Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album with a dynamic track-by-track rendition that features an Indian music ensemble and an array of several very special guests. At the helm is none other that the legendary Goeff Emerick, who engineered the Fab Four's definitive album in 1967, and brings and exciting authenticity to the celebration. Cheap Trick genuinely infuse their brand of Beatlesque power pop into a live tribute that pays homage to their musical influences, by capturing the essence of an album that changed music history.
Never before performed live in its entirety by the Beatles, this footage is an exclusive opportunity to hear the complete Sgt. Pepper album performed live by Cheap Trick, bringing the band full-circle in a chilling tribute to their musical heroes.

"This is a great rendition of the Beatle's Sgt. Pepper by Cheap Trick, an absolutely fantastic, and legendary, band in its own right.
This recording does, however, primarily stick closely to the original tunes by the Beatles. In other words, this is not like At Budokan, or even Silver, as there is no extended jamming or riffing off of the Sgt. Pepper originals. Nor is there the imaginative interpretation, crackle, and dynamism that Cheap Trick provided to Day Tripper on its Found All The Parts EP. That being said, the encore medley of Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End is a nice touch that allows Cheap Trick to show off a little more of its own talents, especially the drum solo by Bun E. Also, at times the songs sound a little less bright, or flatter, than the original versions, especially Good Morning Good Morning, but maybe that's just me or it may be the limitations of recording live or my system.
All in all, this is an excellent recording and worth buying if you are a Cheap Trick fan or don't own or are unfamiliar with the original album/songs by the Beatles. In addition, all proceeds from sales of the album go to a great cause, fighting cancer."

"Cheap Trick sound absolutely Fabulous. They stay so close to the original but add a little spice that this cd turns out to be Brilliant. Within and Without You, Lovely Rita and The End Jam are Fantastic. This cd rocks! I like it so much Im ordering the dvd version. Check this out. cheers TyT"
