Jimi Hendrix plays Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

From Open Culture: "... the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in June, 1967. The album came out on a Friday, and by Sunday night, Jimi Hendrix learned the songs and opened his own show with a cover of the title track. It would have looked something like this."

A comment on the YouTube video: "June 4, 1967 — Hendrix opened the show with his own rendition of 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,' which he had learned in the few days leading up to the show. Harrison and McCartney were extremely impressed by this, especially because it was played on the Sunday after the release of Sgt. Pepper the previous Friday."
