Released on 26 May 1967 in the United Kingdom[nb 1] and 2 June 1967 in the United States, it spent 27 weeks at number one on the UK Albums Chart and 15 weeks at number one in the US.

It won four Grammy Awards in 1968, including Album of the Year, the first rock LP to receive this honour.[/perfectpullquote]
