The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band will be available for download to The Beatles: Rock Band on November 17th on the 360 and Wii, and on the 19th for the PS3.
Sgt. Pepper's is regarded by many rock critics as the high-point of The Beatles musical career, their greatest album and the greatest single album in Rock History. The Sgt. Peppers pack, combined with tracks that shipped with The Beatles: Rock Band will complete the album. There are seven new tracks, including such hits as "She's Leaving Home" and "Within You Without You," but, seriously, all these songs are great. Here's the full listing:
- Fixing A Hole
- She's Leaving Home
- Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite!
- Within You Without You
- When I'm Sixty-Four
- Lovely Rita
- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)
- A Day In The Life
The full track pack will cost you $13.49, while individual tracks will be the standard $1.99.
This release is just in time for the Thanksgiving holidays, where many families will be brought together by the power of The Beatles music, or at least find a diverting and pleasant way to avoid speaking to each other too much.
*These rock critics are wrong. The best Beatles album is Revolver. The best rock albums ever are The Clash's London Calling, then The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, then Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited, followed by Sgt. Pepper's.
