An original 1968 mono first pressing of the Beatles self-titled album also known as ‘The White Album’. In my view, this "White Album" release is absolutely superb, and far superior to the Sgt Pepper 50th Anniversary box set (sorry folks ! Lennon later described the song as one of his favourites, [113] while the rest of the band found the recording rejuvenating, as it forced them to re-hone their skills as a group playing together to get it right. According to the author Ian Inglis: "Whether positive or negative, all assessments of The Beatles drew attention to its fragmentary style. The style was influenced by the British Blues Boom of 1968, which included Fleetwood Mac, Cream, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Jeff Beck and Chicken Shack.

He derided tracks including "Revolution 9" and "Helter Skelter", but said that picking personal highlights was "part of the fun" for listeners.In his review for AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine said that because of its wide variety of musical styles, the album can be "a frustratingly scattershot record or a singularly gripping musical experience, depending on your view". Among reviews of the 2009 remastered album, Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph found that even its worst songs work within the context of such an eclectic and unconventional collection, which he rated "one of the greatest albums ever made".

It is however a recognition that the depth and scope of the new 'White Album' box set, is significantly greater than SPLHCB box set was. According to author and music critic Kenneth Womack, the list of critical works referring to the White Album as postmodernist includes Henry W. It was recorded as an audio vérité exercise, featuring vocal performances from almost everyone who happened to be in the studio at the time.Ono's presence was highly unorthodox as, up to that point, the Beatles had generally worked in isolation, rarely allowing visitors, wives and girlfriends to attend recording sessions. It is a tribute to his mother, Julia Lennon, who was killed in 1958 in a road accident when Lennon was 17, and the lyrics deal with the loss of his mother and his relationship with Ono, the "ocean child" in the lyrics. The review states," John O'Reilly argues that it amounts to little more than a good cover design and two records that could have been one. The album’s 30 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5. However, with this foldout cover, my sample is not accurately cut and, as a result, the cover does not stay flat.

All that aside, any UK reissue from 1970s and 1980s up to 1987 will sound miles better than any US or Canadian pressing. Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. The sleeve included a poster comprising a montage of photographs, with the lyrics of the songs on the back, and a set of four photographic portraits taken by John Kelly. For the later top loaders, the letter type on the labels on record 1, changed to what you would normally see on a UK 1970s reissue.The Beatles contains a wide range of musical styles, which authors Barry Miles and Gillian Gaar view as the most diverse of any of the group's albums. If UK pressing is really from 1978, all or at least some sides should have original matrix numbers, the one that I have is -1/-3/-1/-1 which means that for the most part it sounds very similar to original UK pressing. Harrison claimed the title came from one of the Maharishi's sayings (with "and my monkey" added later). The album is now with all my other vinyl, in Bags Unlimited LP boxes, in storage for … coming up on 20 years now, I imagine.

At the same time the pressing plant also happened to be running Linda Rostandt's 'Blue Bayou' that was to be printed on a blue vinyl. Author Nicholas Schaffner views the acoustic slant as reflective of a widespread departure from the LSD-inspired psychedelia of 1967, an approach initiated by Bob Dylan and the Beach Boys and adopted in 1968 by artists such as the Rolling Stones and the Byrds. This was the first release on Apple Records and ultimately the band's most successful single in the US. The band received a negative critical response to their television film Magical Mystery Tour, which aired in Britain in December 1967, but fan reaction was nevertheless positive. Instead, the single featured a new, faster version, with heavily distorted guitar and an electric piano solo by Nicky Hopkins.
