THE BEA­TLES

Herald Sun - Hit - - MUSIC - /JAMES WIGNEY

(EMI) The most ex­per­i­men­tal and eclec­tic of all The Bea­tles’ re­leases, the White Al­bum — remixed here by Giles Martin from the orig­i­nal tapes — is also tra­di­tion­ally re­garded as the sound­track to a band col­laps­ing un­der the weight of its own great­ness. But lis­ten­ing to the out­takes and de­mos on this 50th an­niver­sary re­lease is a timely re­minder of a vi­tal col­lab­o­ra­tion of ge­nius song­writ­ers, burst­ing with a cre­ativ­ity that couldn’t pos­si­bly be con­tained on one al­bum.
