It was 40 years ago today...

...Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile.
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years,

Jimi Hendrix: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

One of Jimi's favorites to play live. He premiered his cover of this song at a show attended by Paul McCartney the very week that Sgt. Pepper was released.

Natalie Cole: Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

Originally appearing on her 1978 LP Natalie Live! this edited version can be found on her 2000 greatest hits collection

Wes Montgomery: A Day In The Life

This track was recorded the same month as Sgt. Pepper's release. It is the title track of the guitarist's 1967 release.
