Background:  There’s not much point in writing about Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band; entire books have been written about the album.  It’s not only the best-known album of the Beatles’ catalog, but it’s regarded as one of the most influential albums ever released.

In the 1960s, most Japanese LPs were issued in stereo only, so most Japanese buyers never had the opportunity to hear the original mono mixes of most of the Beatles songs.

In 1982, EMI records released limited edition red vinyl pressings in mono of all of the Beatles albums from Please Please Me through Yellow Submarine.  This series was reissued in 1986, though that series featured a different obi from this one.
