Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (soundtrack)
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was a multi-platinum double album produced by George Martin, featuring covers of songs by The Beatles. It was released in July 1978, as the soundtrack to the film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which starred the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton and Steve Martin.
The project was managed by The Robert Stigwood Organisation. In 1975 the original plans for the album were suspended due to a dispute between Columbia and RSO. RSO invested $12 million into this soundtrack and the profit offset set against costs such as $1 million for promotion.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)

Now since Sophia have a-crossed the sea.”

“And the heavy night hung dark
The hills and waters oer,
When a band of exiles moored their bark
On the wild New England shore.”
