    MiG SHORTS: Is Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band a 'concept album'?

    MiG SHORTS: Is Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band a 'concept album'?

    Have you ever debated whether The Beatles' legendary album 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' could be considered a 'concept album'? The McCartney In Goal team debate this often asked question. Plus, Brett shares a fascinating familial connection to a World War II veteran that may well have inspired the album's title (spoiler alert: it didn't). Even if 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' does not strictly adhere to the definition of a concept album, its thematic coherence and psyc...

    Blood Sugar Sex Magic (Red Hot Chilli Peppers)

    In 1991, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers retreated to a mansion with Rick Rubin at the controls and forever changed the direction of their funky spaceship. Suddenly, actual singing, meaningful lyrics and (whisper it) ballads were on the table. Some fans felt cheated: what were their funky heroes playing at? But it mattered little, because the rest of the world finally jumped on board. Is it a classic? Is it too long? Is it funky enough, or too funky? Join us as we unravel the heady stew that ...

    Blood On The Tracks (Bob Dylan)

    Blood On The Tracks (Bob Dylan)

    Over ten years into his career, Dylan delivers an album which is more than simply the cliched 'return to form'. Many still consider it to be his finest recorded work. Almost a concept album in execution, the album covers love affairs in all their ups, downs, triumphs and tragedies. Coming with the usual Dylan complications (why bother letting any of the musicians learn the songs...?), the album delivers gut punch after gut punch, al shrouded in some of his most beautiful melodies. Suppor...

Led Zep IV

Had me laughing the entire time.

Btw I know why it’s spelled Led rather than Lead. They didn’t what American’s (we are a thick lot) to mid-read it and say Lead Zeppelin, as in follow the lead, rather than the metal.

We did really screw up D’yer Maker…so Peter Grant had a valid point.

Also a lot of symbolism in the album cover, and inner sleeve of the album, in addition to the band member symbols, it all has to do with the criticism of Led Zep III and why Page insisted on not having the name Led Zeppelin appear on the album cover
