About this deal

Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. The Beatles themselves were accused of using eclecticism and pastiche as a means of avoiding important issues in the turbulent political and social climate. The stereo version of the LP includes almost a minute more music than the mono, which culminates in Starr famously shouting "I've got blisters on my fingers!

These two-tape releases were both contained in black outer cardboard slipcase covers embossed with the words The Beatles and the outline of an apple in gold print.

Like the original vinyl pressings, these CD copies also featured individually stamped numbers on the album's front cover (in this case on the cover of the booklet for the first disc).

The Lennon composition " What's the New Mary Jane" was demoed at Kinfauns [156] and recorded formally (by Lennon, Harrison and Ono) during the 1968 album sessions. The laminate on the spine is slightly coming away from the sleeve and there is some creasing to the corners. This ten-minute take was later edited and overdubbed to create two separate tracks: "Revolution 1" and the avant-garde "Revolution 9". Among the less favourable critiques, Time magazine's reviewer wrote that The Beatles showcased the "best abilities and worst tendencies" of the Beatles, as it is skilfully performed and sophisticated, but lacks a "sense of taste and purpose". Sullivan's The Beatles with Lacan: Rock 'n' Roll as Requiem for the Modern Age (1995), Ed Whitley's "The Postmodern White Album" (2000), David Quantick's Revolution: The Making of the Beatles' White Album (2002), Devin McKinney's Magic Circles: The Beatles in Dream and History (2003), and Jeffrey Roessner's "We All Want to Change the World: Postmodern Politics and the Beatles' White Album" (2006).

The ratings/reviews displayed here may not be representative of every listing on this page, or of every review for these listings. The only Western instrument available to the group during their Indian visit was the acoustic guitar, and thus many of the songs were written and first performed on that instrument. The Beatles' White Album release marked the coming death of the 60s, but it was also The Beatles' most psychedelic and surreal record. Background vocals throughout the album prove richer on the 2018 edition, with the lower harmonies claiming superior resonation.

I'm certain there are better-sounding issues out there but if you can't afford a "Holy Grail" copy then perhaps seek one of these. It has since been viewed by some critics as a postmodern work, as well as one of the greatest albums of all time. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy.The single was a commercial success in Australia (where it spent five weeks at number one on the Go-Set chart), [149] Japan, [150] Austria [151] and Switzerland. These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy. Considering this was recorded 50 years ago on George Harrison's own home recording equipment the quality of the recording is amazing. Even if it isn't the same cut, it's a very similar mastering and the same source (including missing pause before Cry Baby Cry). The Beatles contains a wide range of musical styles, which authors Barry Miles and Gillian Gaar view as the most diverse of any of the group's albums.

This is the first time The BEATLES (‘White Album’) has been remixed, presented here as a 2LP 180-gram black vinyl set.Conversely to many other retrospective assessments, The Guardian, in 1998, wrote a highly negative review of the original album, rating it . Presented in a lift-top box with a four-page booklet, the limited edition Deluxe 4LP vinyl set presents the 2LP album in a faithful, embossed reproduction of its original gatefold sleeve with the fold-out poster and portrait photos, paired with the 2LP Esher Demos in an embossed gatefold sleeve. By all accounts, the session was chaotic, but nobody dared suggest to any of the Beatles that they were out of control. In his review for AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine said that because of its wide variety of musical styles, the album can be "a frustratingly scattershot record or a singularly gripping musical experience, depending on your view". In February 1967, the Beatles had been unhappy about having to accede to Capitol Records' demand for a new single, because the two tracks, " Strawberry Fields Forever" and " Penny Lane", were therefore ineligible for inclusion on Sgt.
