Few albums have captured the imaginations of as many people as Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles and now the people of the UK have named it the most popular British album of all time.
The Official Charts Company, which has tracked album sales in the U.K. since 1969, proclaimed the Fab Four’s 1967 masterpiece as Britain’s favourite LP, using a metric based on album sales, downloads and streams.
‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ beat Adele’s ’21’ which made it in at number two, and Oasis’ ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ which came in at third place.
Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon and Michael Jackson’s Thriller rounded out the top five at numbers four and five, respectively.
Having celebrated its 50th Anniversary last year, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band is currently available in all formats with bonus features including rare demos and remastered versions of songs.
