The Beatles White Album

After two and a half years and more than 300 posts, I just realized that I never wrote anything about The Beatles. As a teenager raised in the 60s with the sound of the four guys from Liverpool, I shouldn’t miss the opportunity to celebrate the 40th anniversary of that amazing masterpiece double LP usually called The White Album.
My mother gave it to me as a present for Christmas 68 (see photos of “the” copy). At that time, I didn’t have so many records and just few 45s… so The White Album, for months, was on my turntable. Before I had the Sgt Pepper’s, the Magical Mystery Tour LP and one compilation called Oldies But Goldies, my older sister already had Rubber Soul and Revolver. That was my first steps on the music universe… such a good start!
I could write pages and pages about that record and about everything song. It’s a listening delight even 40 years later.
The Beatles is the ninth official album by The Beatles, a double album released in 1968. It is more commonly known as The White Album as it has no text other than the band's name (and, on the early LP and CD releases, a serial number) on its plain white sleeve, which was designed by pop artist Richard Hamilton.

The Beatles are the most-covered band in history, here is just a quick selection of cover versions from The White Album:

Beatlejazz - Blackbird .mp3 from Another Bite Of The Apple
Evan Rachel Wood - Blackbird .mp3 via Friedreich from the musical movie Across The Universe (2007)
Evan Rachel Wood - Dear Prudence .mp3
Joe Anderson - Happiness Is A Warm Gun .mp3
The Rolling Stones & John Lennon - Yer Blues (Live) .mp3

The version of "Yer Blues" you posted is not the Rolling Stones & John Lennon. It's a one-off band called Dirty Mac featuring Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and John Lennon on guitars, Mitch Mitchell on drums, and Yoko Ono in a bag.

Otherwise, good blog post.

Actually The Beatles represented the group's first major musical statement since Sgt. Pepper, and thus was a highly anticipated event for both the mainstream press and the youth-oriented counter-culture movement with which the band had by this time become strongly associated
