      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Then, these guys were the height of creative and unique Pop music.

"The album was released on 1 June 1967 in the United Kingdom and the following day in the United States. Sgt. Pepper is often described as The Beatles' magnum opus and recognized as one of the most influential albums of all time by prominent critics and publications. It was ranked the greatest album of all time by Rolling Stone in 2003."

Funny, how the Beatles chose June 1 to release this album. They must have known that in only twelve years, the Seattle Supersonics would win their one and only world championship on the very same day.

Ever notice how most popular albums for the last 42 years only have 2 or 3 songs that don't suck.

I've always liked the Beatles and have several compilation discs that are always in one of my cars. All my Beatles albums are stored on my server so I rarely think of "albums" anymore and it wasn't until I read the track listing in the OP that I realized I have completely ignored this album on all my compilations. Maybe it’s the result of 42 years of constant airplay.......

So, the BBC banned three songs from the album citing drug references in each song. These songs are Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, A Day in the Life, and Being For the Benefit of Mr Kite. They didn't ban With a Little Help from my Friends ("I get high with a little help from my friends") or even Lovely Rita ("when are you free to take some T with me") though McCartney being British was most likely talking about drinking tea.

 

Drug references? Judge for yourself:

No, the BBC, when banning anything, simply state, "we've already got one...and it's quite nice."

yes, yes, portrayed as a French knight, but it's from the mind of a Brit.
