cheaptrick_sgtpeppers_150MUSIC: Cheap Trick / Sgt. Pepper Live – Original lineup still intact, Cheap Trick remains as revered and legendary as ever. In addition to releasing recent studio album The Latest, the quartet took on a Las Vegas Hilton residency in which they performed The Beatles’ classic Sgt. Peppers’ Lonely Hearts Club Band. As the title of this release would imply, this is a live recording of that entire classic album, giving listeners exactly what they would expect. (cheaptrick.com)
