"Since its release in 1978 both critics and the general public have ruthlessly slammed this album, my guess is out of a sense of fanatic loyalty to the Beatles opus and I've never understood why; I've always been of the opinion that Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees did a rather admirable job on this album and they never set out to do a note for note re-make. I like the melancholy feeling Frampton injects into "The Long And Winding Road" and personally think that his version stands toe to toe with Paul McCartney's. Robin Gibb puts a nice, bluesy spin on "Oh Darling", and I love the harmonies of the Brothers Gibb on "I Want You/She's So Heavy". Their voices blend together seamlessly and effortlessly.Sandy Farina sounds especially vulnerable and touching on "Strawberry Fields Forever", offering a new perspective on the song from a woman's point of view. I also like Diane Steinberg and Stargard's (whatever happened to that group?) sexy delivery of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" as well.After being out of circulation for at least a good fifteen years, personally I am glad that this album is now finally available on CD and am the proud owner of this great album."

I love Sgt.Pepper's lonely Hearts Club Band !!!
At least three times a week I listen to it. I've
always been a huge fan of the "Beegees " , and it gave
me a chance to enjoy other singers, even George Burns.
I also bought the movie on DVD and VHS.
I love all of it. The music is great !!!
I love dumb movies,and the movie was dumb, but a lot of fun !
In the future, I hope to buy more copies of the CD and the
To those disco freaks that love cheesy films!

"Yes, I'm a HUGE fan of Peter Frampton and the Brothers Gibb and I'm an even BIGGER fan of cheesy films. I've been hunting down this soundtrack on CD since wearing out the VHS I checked out from the library. After having the DVD fall on my foot at my local Walgreen's (and watching it 7 times over 3 days), I'm now starting my search again for the awesome soundtrack. I'm a bit miffed that the tracks are out of order, but it's no big deal. If you love Frampton's guitar work, the BeeGee's vocals, and a cheesy film from '78 to boot, then by all means, get it. For those haters that don't like disco-fied Beatles covers, well, all I can say to them is pfft (oh, and not buy it if they're going to just fuss and cuss about how it's not 'right')."
