1967 WAS A TRANSFORMATIVE YEAR FOR THE BEATLES




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The year 1967 was a transformative one for The Beatles, the decisive period in which the friendly rivalry that propelled the Lennon-McCartney songwriting partnership to the highest possible critical and commercial heights began to disintegrate. May that year saw the release of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," which critics including Rolling Stone's Kurt Loder have argued is, if not definitively the best Beatles release, certainly their most iconic and representative work, the perfect soundtrack to 1967's Summer of Love and a release that has become indelibly linked to the '60s counterculture.

But "Sgt. Pepper" also signaled the moment Lennon and McCartney's interests started to diverge, and the power struggle between the two, which would complicate final years of the band, began. 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The concept album was primarily McCartney's idea, whose role in the group was expanding as Lennon found himself in crisis, withdrawing from the world amid the last turbulent months of his unhappy first marriage. "I was still in a real big depression in 'Pepper,' and I know Paul wasn't at that time. He was feeling full of confidence ... I was going through murder," Lennon commented.

Though the "Sgt. Pepper" tune "A Day In The Life" represents one of the greatest successes of the Lennon-McCartney partnership, the song is a combination of two different compositions. As time went on, it became obvious that the "eyeball to eyeball" songwriting of the early sixties would never be revisited.
