Default The Beatles (white album)

I got this yesterday in the remastered version. It sounds incredible.

There are some very amazing songs on that album. Mostly by John Lennon and George Harrison. It seems like the two of them started to "break out" and become solo artists at that time.

This is a good one:

I love that thing in Martha My Dear that Paul does with his voice when he sings "look what you've dooooone". It's such a cool melody. That guy could write the most perfect pop songs with zero effort. Dude is one talented as hell songwriter

Loved that song as well !

My favorites on the White Album though were Dear Prudence and While
My Guitar Gently Weeps.

The White Album is definitely the Apex Album of the Beatles brief time together.
If not THE Best, Absolutely one of the top 5 Rock Albums ever recorded.

It's amazing to think that band was only together and in the public eye a little over six years. What they accomplished in six years seems like 100.

Most of the generations of people that came along after 60s, never realized
from just the music what kind of influence The Beatles had on Rock Music
(hell, even music in general). It wasn't just about the music they recorded,
but it was about "The Look", "The Attitude", "The Technology", "The
Art of Writing Songs" etc.... In That short time, the Beatles evolved
and morphed their look and their style of music three / four times, and
each time they changed, the world of music followed in their wake. They
wrote hit songs in what started out as Pop/Rock, Then Rock a Billy, and
then Psychedelia. Six years in the spotlight, but that short six years have
made them and their music immortal.

Yup. It is still mind boggling to me that the white album took like 4 months to write, record, produce, and release. That is amazing. Four months is nothing

I agree with everything you stated Spurt. Just think what these guys could have done if they had stayed together, maybe take a year off to do some solo work and get back together to start again. John, Paul, and George were very talented and sooner or later with this much talent in a band there is going to be strife. Drugs, women, and most likely a change in the direction of the band helped undo them as Paul towards the end almost ran the group and as George Martin has stated many times that Paul was passing John in musical talent and John had a tough time dealing with it. Credit should also be given to Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys for having the musical genius to "battle it out with the combination of John and Paul". The Pet Sounds Album of the Beach Boys, although not a commercial hit as far as sells go at the time, just blew John and Paul away and was the inspiration for them to buckle down and come up the their greatest album Sgt Pepper. Brian Wilson could come up with sounds that were way ahead of anyone at the time and he did not have anyone in his band that had the talent that he had. The Beatles also had George Martin as a producer and this guy was also a genius for his time and helped the Beatles in so many ways. I think if Brian Wilson would have had a partner in the same talent level as John or Paul and also a producer like George Martin, then the Beach Boys would have really taken it to another level. That's not to say that the Beach Boys were not a great and legendary band because they were. It would have been nice to see Brian Wilson have more help as the Beach Boys were about the only group in artistical talent that could challenge the Fab Four in the studio. I never got to see the Beatles in concert, but I did nave the honor of seeing the Beach Boys in the early 80's and it was one of the best concerts that I have ever been to in my life. I am sure that the Beatles sounded great if you could have heard them over all the young girls screaming in the concert halls!

Before John was killed, I like everyone else would have loved to see the Beatles get back in the studio and record another new album. Could you imagine that? Older, wiser, and more mellow in the 80's and laying down new tracks. The money those guys would have made!!!!!

Elvis and the Beatles, will there ever be such a drastic change to the musical landscape again?

You guys have excellent taste in Beatles music. Discovered this album in college and it quickly became my favorite Beatles album. Long, long, long and I'm so Tired are probably my favorites off the album. There is also something very comforting about Ringo's lullaby song at the end.

Always been my favorite Beatles album. Been listening to it since I was knee high to a grasshopper. When I was child I always wanted to hear "Rocky Raccoon". So many great tunes on this album. One of top 5 greatest albums of all-time.
