A scarce song sheet for the Sgt Pepper’s Lp track. By 1967 the Beatles had retreated into the studio to work on more complex recordings. This didn’t prevent their music publishers issuing their new psychedelia material as sheet music. By 1967 fewer and fewer people bought song sheets of popular songs, – essentially a throwback to the days of Music Hall (before recorded music)- and take them home to bash them out on the old piano for the benefit of the family.
You can almost follow the rule, the more complex the recording the rarer the sheet music. Since UK 45rpms of this period were rare issued in picture sleeves, sheet music is often the only way of obtaining a contemporary image of a band to accompany the song, Hence why sheet music of this period is becoming increasingly collectable for framing.
