BACK IN THE USSR
WHITE ALBUM BY THE BEATLES
After the colourful artwork of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the cover of their 1968 album, The Beatles (aka The White Album), was plain white with some black letters simply stating ‘ The BEATLES’. It was released as an untitled double album with a total of 30 songs. These ranged from the straight rock of Back In The USSR and Birthday to acoustic pleasantry such as Blackbird, Julia and Mother Nature’s Son. George Harrison impressed with While My Guitar Gently Weeps and perplexed with Piggies. There was also out-and-out weirdness with Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey.
