The White Album – The Beatles

The White Album – The Beatles

The Beatles is the ninth studio album by the rock band The Beatles and is commonly known as The White Album. It was released in November, 1968.

Most of the songs were written in India, during the early 1968 and when they came back in England they had around 40 songs. In May, they recorded demos of 26 songs and that was enough for a double album.
During their visit in India, the only western instrument they had was acoustic guitar and because of that most of the songs were written and first performed on that instrument. Some of the songs, such as “Blackbird“, “Julia“, “Mother Nature’s Son“, “Rocky Raccoon“, remained acoustic on the album and were recorded either solo, or by only part of the group.

There were many songs written for The White Album but were not included in the album. Such songs are “Not Guilty“, “Circles“, “Sour Milk Sea” and “Something“. Some of the tracks appeared on the later releases and some on the respective solo albums.

The album was released by the Apple Records, and it is their only original double album.

The White Album reached Number One on the charts in US and UK and since then is known as one of the greatest albums of all time.
