The Beatles White Album – Classic Rock Pick of the Week

The Beatles ‘White Album’ was actually titled ‘The Beatles.’

This was the 9th album for the group, the first released on Apple records (their only original double LP), and sported a white cover with no text or graphics on the cover, just their band name embossed on the sleeve.

‘The Beatles’ or ‘White Album’ as we like to call it, was released in 1968 as a double album, and hit the number one spot on the charts in both the U.K. and U.S.
Rolling Stone magazine listed the album as number 10 in the top 500 albums of all time.

‘The Beatles’ sold over 30 million copies worldwide.

Several of the tunes were conceived in Spring 1968 in Rishikesh, India while the four members of the Beatles were participating in a transcendental meditation course with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Here’s a version of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ with George Harrison, Ringo Starr,  Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Elton John and Jeff Lyne.
