To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles self-titled double album, Universal have put together a real labour of love. For the first time The White Album (as it is most commonly known) is being made available as a 2LP stereo press and as a 4LP set complete with Giles Martin Stereo Mixes and Esher demos.
Lovingly restored, this is the ultimate way to hear the bands most eclectic and diverse album. The songs surely need no introduction but the likes of Dear Prudence, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Blackbird, Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey and Helter Skelter have never sounded better. Crisp production, warm and spacious mixes (courtesy of Giles Martin) make this the most exciting Beatles re-issue of the current campaign. Along with the demo's recorded at Beatle Georges' Esher pad , there's never-seen-before-outtakes, snippets and video clips like this one to get your teeth into!!
Regarding availability, the 4LP press is a limited run so be quick if you want a copy. The standard 2lp issue should be instock for a while but we expect demand to be heavy over the Christmas period, so best not leave it too long...
Vinyl Revolution album of the week!
