In November 1968, the Beatles band released millions of copies of their deluxe ninth double album, which for generations has continued to inspire humanity. Later it was known as The White Album.
It is no wonder, therefore, that for its 50th anniversary it will be reedited and released on November 9, and will include 30 mixed songs by Giles Martin (son of George Martin) and Sam Okell, 27 early acoustic demo recordings (Esher Demos) and 50 recordings that haven’t been yet released!
The White Album will be available in several versions, whether in collectible or classic. Most of the songs that are on the album were composed in the meditation centre of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi near Indian Rishikesh. All members of the group and their wives travelled here in February 1968 to engage in meditation.
Interestingly, in comparison with the previous album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, it is not conceptual and has many variable styles of music (blues, hard rock, folk, ska and others), and was originally called the “Dollhouse”. The album cover was designed by Richard Hamilton, a renowned pop art artist. In Britain and America, The White Album became bestseller after a few hours and held the first place for more than two months. The deluxe album became 19x platinum and was introduced in Grammy Hall of Fame in 2000 as "a record of unmatched quality and historical significance".
According to leading music critics, this is the best album ever released by the Beatles. After that, the band had released three more albums before they broke up in 1970. All speculation about their rebirth ended in 1980 with Lennon's death.
