The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper entering "Guinness World Records" book thanks to UK chart achievement

Parlophone/Capitol Records/UMeThe Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has made its mark on the music world in many ways, and now the influential 1967 album will be heading into the Guinness World Records book thanks to a recent chart achievement. The album is being recognized for the longest gap between stints at #1 on the U.K. chart, uDiscoverMusic.com reports.

Bolstered by a deluxe 50th anniversary reissue that came out in late May, Sgt. Pepper returned to the top spot of the U.K.'s Official Albums Chart on June 8, 2017, 49 years and 125 days since the last time it held the #1 position --  -- on February 3, 1968. The album with the next longest gap between stints at #1 in the U.K. is The Rolling Stones' 1972 record Exile on Main St., which returned to the top spot after the release of a deluxe reissue on May 29, 2010, 37 years and 353 days since it had previously been at #1.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band first hit the top of the chart on June 10, 1967, and spent 23 straight weeks there. It then reached #1 four more times between November 1967 and February 1968.

The album has sold 5.1 million copies in the U.K., making it the bestselling studio effort and third most successful album overall in the country, following Queen's Greatest Hits and ABBA's Gold compilation.

As recently reported by Billboard, Sgt. Pepper also was the top-selling vinyl LP in the U.S. in 2017.
