QuoteIn America normal radio play was virtually suspended for several days, only tracks from Sergeant Pepper being played. An almost religious awe surrounded the LP. Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane remembers how the Byrds' David Crosby brought a tape of Sergeant Pepper to their Seattle Hotel and played it all night in the lobby with a hundred young fans listening quietly on the stairs, as if rapt by a spiritual experience. 'Something', says Kantner, 'enveloped the whole world at that time and it just exploded into a renaissance'.The psychic shiver which Sergeant Pepper sent through the world was nothing less than a cinematic dissolve from one Zeitgeist to another. In The Times, Kenneth Tynan called it 'a decisive moment in the history of Western civilisation'.
