Like the album itself, the soundtrack to the 1978 film Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is a legend in its own right. Where the Beatles‘ album was a groundbreaking moment in pop music, the Robert Stigwood film was an unmitigated disaster, an embarrassment not only to the Beatles, but to everyone involved in the production. Nevertheless, as the years passed and ’70s nostalgia grew, certain kitsch fanatics revealed an affection for the debacle A few performers try to give their best — witness Earth, Wind & Fire‘s “Got to Get You Into My Life,” Aerosmith‘s “Come Together,” and Billy Preston’s “Get Back” — but there’s no erasing the fact that this is an absolutely atrocious record, one that was simply beyond saving. There’s really no excuse for such mind-boggling mismatches as George Burns‘ “Fixing a Hole,” Alice Cooper‘s “Because,” Steve Martin‘s “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer,” or all the endless, awkward numbers from the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, and Frankie Howard. It’s so bad that it’s not even camp.
