The magazine gets its first full colour cover, to celebrate the release of the Sgt Pepper LP. As well as the regular content, this issue features articles on the making of the album, the concept and design, and a track-by-track review by Mal Evans and Neil Aspinall. Most of the featured photographs relate to the making of the LP. “Behind the Spotlight” is in June 1965, when the boys were awarded their MBEs. There is also a full page ad for the “pirate” Radio London, “Your Number 1 Beatles Station”, the only ad the magazine ran for anything not directly related to the Beatles.
