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.
