09: Was Sgt. Pepper The Beatles’ Creative Peak?
In this special edition, Robert and Richard discuss the merits of the Pepper album, as well as whether John Lennon’s pulling back from the others represented a tragedy of artistic promise gone unfulfilled or simply John being John.
Beatle historian Mark Lewisohn (All Those Years: Tune In) then joins them for a lively discussion taped onstage in the ballroom at The Fest for Beatles Fans.
