2009 2 x CD Japanese remastered pressing. Includes a bonus Japanese text booklet & OBI. The audio content is the same as all other pressings. EMI.
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. --Chris Nickson

Maybe the most interesting thing about the White Album is that it shows just how far apart John and Paul had grown, artistically and, as we found out later, in other ways too.Read more ›
I was fortunate enough to obtain one of the scarce copies in 1969. In addition, it seemed funny to be playing "Back In The U.S.S.R." at West Point New York. As for the rest of the album, many reviews look on this as an eclectic collection. On the surface it maybe. Then you can hear and feel the underlying pattern of the Beatles. They are just extending their range and keeping that which makes them unique.
I believe this album is addictive.
Most people look favorably on this album others look at it as a transitional time for the Beatles. Either way they realize the Beatles as any artist have down the universal fundamentals that make good music and have adapted it to a unique style.
The few detractors are usually people that do not understand what goes into music and would benefit from an appreciation class.
True some tracks probably would not be purchased as a single. It is the peril of many albums that they must carry some of the weaker contributions.
Bottom line is that this item is worth the investment.
Some little jokes are on here to, like the rockin song Back In The USSR made to make fun of the Beach Boys and Chuck Berry's songs Back in the US. Glass Onion to ease the pain of critics trying to figure out songs on their last releases. And Goodnight which was originally written by John to be a simple bedtime song for his son just played on guitar, but he thought to make fun of Disney and just go overboard with orcastral arrangement (which I personally think is quite funny after growing up with the old Disney stuff).
All in all I gave it four stars because some of the songs could have been left off like Paul granny song Honey Pie and the weirdest effort ever by John Revolution #9. And as for filler songs there is always some people that like them better than all the ones that everybody else seemingly likes, and there are like possibly 4 albums on the planet that don't have any filler so I never saw the issue with that anyway.

What can you say about the Double White.. Too bad they broke up the band. Even at this late stage in their career they were still at the top of their game. Read morePublished 6 months ago by TDN
the album is really good and sound fantastic ,the 180 gr vinyl is of very good qualityPublished 7 months ago by ray tousi
Great pressing, but the digital remastering makes it sound like an inferior CD, not a superior LP. Try to find a decent vintage LP instead.Published 8 months ago by Kenji F.
