This juke is exclusive to Sound Leisure and they have received the license from Apple Corps LTD (The Beatles' licensing and record company.
The design of the jukebox is based off their vinyl Rocket machine. Distribution will be done through Sound Leisure and Jingle Games will distribute throughout the UK.
In Sound Leisure's Press Release, Mike Ansell stated, “I am very pleased to be working with Sound Leisure once again, it’s sixteen years since they manufactured the first Beatles jukebox for Lordsvale, which was the Yellow Submarine. The Yellow Submarine has since become a highly collectable sought after jukebox.”
Chris Black, Marketing Director of Sound Leisure stated in that same release, "I believe that we have collectively created a machine that without doubt captures and celebrates this moment in time. Due to the machine being based on our vinyl playing platform, The Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Jukebox is probably the most exclusive jukebox ever to be produced.”
The release will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the albums release.
