Better known as the "White Album," this was meant to be the record that brought them back to earth after three years of studio experimentation. Instead, it took them all over the place, continuing to burst the envelope of pop music. Lennon and McCartney were still at the height of their powers, with Lennon in particular growing into one of rock's towering figures. But even McCartney could still rock, and the amazement on "Helter Skelter" was that he had vocal cords at the end. From Beach Boys knock-offs to reggae and to the unknown "Revolution 9" , this has it all. Some records have legend written all over them; this is one.

The Beatles , also known as the White Album , is the ninth studio album and only double album by the English rock band the Beatles , released on 22 November Its plain white sleeve has no graphics or text other than the band's name embossed , [a] which was intended as a direct contrast to the vivid cover artwork of the band's previous LP Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The Beatles is recognised for its fragmentary style and diverse range of genres, including folk , British blues , ska , music hall and the avant-garde. It has since been viewed by some critics as a postmodern work, as well as among the greatest albums of all time. Most of the songs on the album were written during March and April at a Transcendental Meditation course in Rishikesh , India. There, the only western instrument available to the band was the acoustic guitar; some of these songs remained acoustic on The Beatles and were recorded solo, or only by part of the group.
Five years ago I stood in a room containing nothing but White Albums. For his installation We Buy White Albums, the Californian artist Rutherford Chang had filled a small gallery in Manhattan with vinyl copies of the ninth Beatles album, some on the walls, some in racks. The sleeve, designed by Pop artist Richard Hamilton , is famously blank but every one of these copies was faded, stained, torn, illustrated, signed or otherwise altered in some unique way, whether by a human hand or simply by the passing of time. As I studied them, I listened to multiple copies of side one playing simultaneously and slowly drifting out of sync, rendering these exceptionally famous songs eerie and strange. Joan Didion stole its title for her essay collection, an elegy for the dreams of s California. The jam band Phish covered all 30 songs on stage on Halloween night, Charles Manson , notoriously, had his own theories. Even the title has been rewritten: The Beatles called it The Beatles but their fans had other ideas. The new reissue defamiliarises the album yet again, with 27 demos, 50 outtakes, and a thorough digital reconstruction by Giles Martin , the son of Beatles producer George Martin. It therefore attracts two kinds of fan: the editor and the sprawler.
