Released November 1968, two years ahead of schedule, 'The Beatles' offer
a soundtrack to the Sixties. Soon re-christened "The White Album", this
double album strains to contain its fragmentary splinters and spiky
musicality. Marking a step change from the technicolor energy of Sgt.
Pepper, and wrapped in a blank sleeve mark this progression, the album
contains a chaotic panoply of songs and sounds including Back in the
USSR, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Helter Skelter, Blackbird, Ob-La-Di,
Ob-La-Da, Dear Prudence and more, predicting the fragmentary nature of
the close of the decade.
