Would go on to be a reference point for long, eclectic but brilliant spectacle pieces alongside The Wall, London Calling, Physical Graffiti & etc. Listening to it, you can see why.
After coming off of the extensive India trip, the Beatles released a double-LP in 68 called the White Album. This was one of the tensest recording sessions in the Beatles history, as the other Beatles were introduced to Yoko Ono and Lennon's heroin addiction. But somehow in all of the madness, the Beatles make a daring, interesting album, that has many of classics and underrated tracks. George Harrison, in particular, thrives in this album.
Highlights: Dear Prudence, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Blackbird, Julia, Mother Nature's Son and Long, Long, Long
Wouldn't be the same without Tracks like Revolution 9 and Wild Honey Pie
The fact that this was a double LP kinda stopped me from wanting to listen to it, but wow is almost every track on here up to par
I agree with what George Martin and Ringo Starr said in the Beatles Anthology that the album could have been great if it would NOT have been a double album. I don't know what songs would have been omitted by them, but if it was up to me and I was the producer, the album's tracking sequence would have been like this:
1. Back In The USSR
2. Dear Prudence
3. Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da
4. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
5. Martha My Dear
1. Yer Blues
2. Mother Nature's Son
3. Sexy Sadie
4. Helter Skelter
5. Revolution 1
6. Good Night
The omitted songs should have been released as b-sides to singles.
I bought Beatles (White Album) by Beatles on 25/08/1986 from Record & Tape Exchange on CD2 for £12.00 The version I have is on the record label Parlophone catalogue number CDS 7 46443 8 It entered the UK charts on 07/12/1968 and got to number 1 spending a total of 24 weeks on the chart.
This album sounds like 3 individual songwriters battling to see who can win with their songs. It makes for a great listen even if it is a bit disjointed. Not all four were present in the studio at the same time McCartney working mostly solo or with Harrison/Starr and Lennon preoccupied with Yoko Ono whose influence is clearly felt on Revolution 9. There are 30 tracks and IMO this could have been trimmed down to 26 omitting Piggies, Wild Honey Pie, Revolution 9 & Why Don't We Do it in The Road. Having said that the album is a must for all Beatle fans and music lovers contains some great tracks - Happiness Is A Warm Gun, Blackbird, Back In The U.S.S.R. & Helter Skelter.
Tier List for my preferences of the tracks on this album:
Top: 1, 3, 4, 6, 13, 14, 18, 23, 26, 27
High: 2, 7-12, 15, 20, 21
Neutral: 5, 16, 22, 24, 25, 29, 30
Low: 17, 19, 28
Would habe made a very good single lp. Unfortunately too many bad songs on the double( e.g. Revolution 9, Goodnight).
My favorite Beatles album! So much going on in this behemoth of an album, from quirky western ballads to early heavy metal. Truly a work of art :)
