COMMENTS

On 6 February 1976 the 9 year contract The Beatles had signed with EMI came to an end. However EMI retained the right to reissue anything it wanted from the old catalogue. So it released “The Singles Collection 1962 - 1970”.

This single was part of that E.M.I. campaign to reissue all the Beatles official singles. All 23 (the original 22 plus this one) were issued in a similar green picture sleeve with different pictures on the reverse.

COMMENTS
The Beatles’ 25th (official) British single, and the first to feature tracks from the Sgt. Pepper album.

In the summer of 1978 a Hollywood film, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, was released in the USA and led to a much renewed interest in The Beatles’ original album. The film, and accompanying soundtrack, featured Peter Frampton, The Bee Gees, Earth, Wind and Fire, Billy Preston, Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, George Burns, Frankie Howerd, Paul Nicholas and others.

Following Capitol’s lead (Sgt. Pepper’s was released as a 45 in the USA on 14 August 1978) and with the imminent arrival of the film on British screens, EMI released Sgt. Pepper’s as a 45 in the UK on 30 September 1978.
