The White Album

The Beatles is a double album, released by The Beatles in 1968. It is often referred to as The White Album, with reference to its predominantly plain white sleeve, which was designed by pop artist Richard Hamilton. The album was released at the height of the Beatles' popularity, and is often hailed as one of the major accomplishments in popular music.

This album, called simply "The Beatles," and known as the "White Album," is surely The Beatles' most disparate album. It came at a time in 1968 when The Beatles were in their "psychedelic" phase, and going through enormous tensions among themselves.

The White Album is the Beatles' best-selling album at 19-times platinum and the ninth-best-selling album of all time in the United States. With this album, each of the four band members began to showcase the range and depth of their own individual songwriting talents and styles that would be carried over to their eventual solo careers. Many of the songs here are personal and self-referencing. In fact, many songs on the "White Album" were originally conceived during the group's ill-fated visit to India (http://www.thebeatlesinrishikesh.com/gallery/main_gallery.html)

The Beatles was the last Beatles album to be released with a unique, alternate mono mix, albeit one issued only in the UK. The album's cover was designed by Richard Hamilton, a notable pop artist who had organised a Duchamp retrospective at the Tate Gallery the previous year. The White Album's album cover has been very influential.

In 1997 The White Album was named the 10th greatest album of all time in a 'Music of the Millennium' poll conducted by HMV, Channel 4, The Guardian and Classic FM. In Q magazine readers placed it at number 17, while in 2003 the TV network VH1 placed it at number 11. In 2003 it was named #10 in the list of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

This is some of the Obladi-Oblada's lyrics,

"...Obladi oblada life goes on braLala how the life goes onObladi Oblada life goes on braLala how the life goes on..." - Lennon/McCartney (http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Palladium/7821/white.html)

the legend berkata...

mystique and psychedelic telah dimuatkan dlm album ini yg mana telah bermula sejak tahun 1967.

di mana, muzik2 beatles tlah diadun dan diremixkan dgn unsur2 pelik dan yg agak mystique apabila didengar.

ini adalah salah satu good experiment yg dibuat oleh beatles.. yg mana ianya memulakan satu budaya yg hebat pd masa itu "hippies".. kita bule lihat pada corak2 dan arts yg wujud pada masa itu.
