The Beatles “White Album” by The Beatles

The Beatles, also known as the White Album, is the ninth studio album by English rock group The Beatles, released on 22 November 1968 on the Apple Records label.  A double album, its plain white sleeve has no graphics or text other than the band’s name embossed.  There were two versions of this released, one on the plain black vinyl and a collector’s version with white vinyl.  This album also contains a poster and four individual photos of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.  This album was the beginning of the major problems in the band a lot of tracks were not recorded together.  In fact, out of the album’s 30 tracks, only 16 have all four band members performing. Some people think this is the best album they have ever recorded and I agree.  Until this album Lennon and McCartney was writing songs as a team.  On this album each of The Beatles was writing their songs alone.  My favorite tracks on this album is Back In The U.S.S.R., While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Rocky Raccoon, Birthday, Good Night, Blackbird and much more.  The track Helter Skelter was used my Charles Manson and his family to justify the Tate-LaBianca murders.  In fact several cuts off the album Manson thought The Beatles was talking to him with this album and sending a message to start a race war.  This is my favorite album of all The Beatles albums.  This album was well written, performed, recorded and produced by George Martin.  This is one album you must add to your Beatles record library.
