The Beatles - The Beatles (White Album) [6CD/Blu-ray] (CD Box Set)
Released in 1968, this eponymous album (widely known as The White Album) is the iconic ninth studio album from The Beatles. Most of the songs on the double-album were written during March and April 1968 at a Transcendental Meditation course in Rishikesh, India. Despite a number of personal issues during recording, the record reached #1 on both sides of the Atlantic, and is widely hailed as one of the greatest albums of all time.
This superb 50th anniversary box set includes Giles Martin's new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original four-track and eight-track session tapes. Martin's new mix is guided by the album's original stereo mix produced by his father, George Martin.
During the last week of May 1968, The Beatles gathered at George's house in Esher, Surrey, where they recorded acoustic demos for 27 songs. Known as the Esher Demos, all 27 recordings are also included in the package, sourced from the original four-track tapes.
A further three CDs pack in 50 additional recordings, most previously unreleased, from the studio sessions; all newly mixed from the four-track and eight-track session tapes, and sequenced in order of their recording start dates.
Finally, a Blu-ray disc features four separate mixes of the album: a high resolution PCM stereo mix; a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix; a Dolby True HD 5.1 mix and a direct transfer of the album's original mono mix.
