In November 1968, millions of double LPs were shipped to record stores worldwide ahead of that tumultuous year’s most anticipated music event: the November 22nd release of The BEATLES (soon to be better known as ‘The White Album’).
With their ninth studio album, The Beatles took the world on a whole new trip, side one blasting off with the exhilarating rush of a screaming jet escorting Paul McCartney’s punchy, exuberant vocals on â€œBack In The U.S.S.R.â€ â€œDear Prudenceâ€ came next, John Lennon warmly beckoning his friend and all of us to â€œlook around.â€ George Harrison imparted timeless wisdom in â€œWhile My Guitar Gently Weeps,â€ singing, â€œWith every mistake we must surely be learning.â€ Ringo Starr’s â€œDon’t Pass Me Byâ€ marked his first solo songwriting credit on a Beatles album.
For 50 years, ‘The White Album’ has invited its listeners to venture forth and explore the breadth and ambition of its music, delighting and inspiring each new generation in turn.
On November 9, 2018, The Beatles will release a suite of lavishly presented ‘White Album’ packages. The album’s 30 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio.
This is the first time The BEATLES (‘White Album’) has been remixed, presented here as a 2LP 180gm black vinyl set. To create the new stereo audio mixes for ‘The White Album,’ Giles Martin and Sam Okell worked with an expert team of engineers and audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios in London.
This 2LP â€˜White Album’ release includes Martin’s new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original four-track and eight-track session tapes. Martin’s new mix is guided by the album’s original stereo mix produced by his father, George Martin. Half-speed cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios.
