Editors’ Notes

Beneath the white-on-white cover art, "The White Album" is an eclectic, 30-track album of largely stripped-down material, originally spread across two vinyl records. The album was a stark contrast to Sgt. Pepper in every aspect—from the cover art to the sounds within. The sheer breadth of material as well as the mixture of the loud and the soft is part of what makes "The White Album" so surprising. The heavy sounds of "Helter Skelter" and "Yer Blues" juxtapose with the gentle beauty of "Long, Long, Long" and "Julia." The cacophony of "Revolution 9" is followed by the orchestral lullaby of "Good Night." The album's extended length gave the band room in which they could explore all of their musical influences and multiple forms of popular music, while creating revolutionary sounds in the studio.

Piggies, Weeping Guitars and Warm Guns - Brilliant Fairy Tales for Our Times

"The White Album" is a collection of fractured fairy tales. You've got dancing Piggies, troubled Blackbirds, the villainous Sexy Sadie, the tragic Rocky Racoon, the melancholy Prudence and Martha, Desmond and Molly, kings and queens, weeping guitars, warm guns and the continuing adventures of Bungalow Bill. It's all a twisted commentary on (and celebration of) the warping of Western culture by sex, power, religion, money, war, secrets, love, lack of love, and all things natural and unnatural... starting with the once-upon-a-time, flipped perspective of "Born in the USSR" and ending with the sarcastic lullabye "Good Night." The album, delivered as rock, folk and blues, aims particularly at America... the birthplace of rock, folk and blues, and likely the birthplace of the stories we are about to hear. It's a long, strange ride, and it's the Beatles' best album. Enjoy it.

Best band ever!

So much has been said and written about the Beatles -- and their story is so mythic in its sweep -- that it's difficult to summarize their career without restating clichés that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans. To start with the obvious, they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century. Moreover, they were among the few artists of any discipline that were simultaneously...
