If you ask someone in England, «What’s the greatest pop album of all times?», the answer will almost certainly be: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. When it was released in June 1967, it was an instant hit with both the public and the critics. It spent 23 weeks at the top of the album charts!

Made up of John Lennon, Paul Mccartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, the Beatles were just ordinary lads from Liverpool. (1)... .

The group became nationally famous in England in October 1962, when their first single Love Me Do entered the Hit Parade at number 27.

At that time the Beatles were playing at Liverpool’s Cavern Club. (2) ... . Local shopkeepers often complained about the crowds and the noise. The man who ran the local record shop went to see what all the fuss was about. His name was Brian Epstein, the man who became the Beatles manager. He later said, «I sensed that something was happening, something terribly exciting. I knew they could be one of the greatest bands in the world».

Brian persuaded the beatles to change their clothing style and haircuts. (3) ... .

The job of producing the Beatles’ records went to George Martin who worked at the EMI studios in Abbey Road, North London. George Martin became the brains behind the recording successes of the Beatles (although John Lennon never agreed with that). (4) ... .

October 13, 1963, was an important day in Beatles’ history. The group had a job at London’s Palladium. The concert was a great success. They were crowded by thousand of teenagers. A new desease was born. It was called Beatlemania.

During the heught of Beatlemania John Lennon once said that the beatles were «more popular than Jesus Christ». (5) ... . Hundreds of young Americans burnt their Beatles records and went on anti-Beatles demonstrations. Radio stations banned their songs.

The scandal soon died down, but the Beatles decided to stop touring and became a studio band instead.

In the early 1970s, the Beatles finally decided to break up. Lennon became a solo performer, wrote a book and took part in many different activities. McCartney formed a new group called «Wings». George Harrison was rarely seen, but spent time raising money for charity, ringo starr began a surprisingly successful career as a film star. (6) ... .

a) He encouraged them to introduce all kinds of musical instruments on their record and combined popular and classical styles in a new and original way.

b) These became famous as their trademark.

c) They were seen together less and less often.

d) And they didn’t become famous overnight, as many people think. They worked hard to become successful.
