Better known as The White Album, it’s the 30th anniversary of the seminal 1968 Beatles record and Capitol Records is celebrating with a limited edition, individually-numbered re-release that captures the look and feel as well as postcards and poster of the original vinyl album. After Revolver, this is one of The Beatles’ best albums, though it was also the first where the group began working less as a group and started recording individually with session musicians.
Hints of future solo work are strikingly apparent in John Lennon’s emotionally bare “Julia,” and Paul McCartney’s rocker “Back In The U.S.S.R.” (think Wings circa Band On The Run). The White Album is simply one of the greatest albums in rock history and more than any other Beatles album, highlights the enormous variety of their songwriting punch.
