Cheapest price I've ever seen this one.
2009 Remastered version of this infamous Beatles double album.
30 tracks over two discs, an absolute essential to anyones record collection who doesn't already own it.
Ranked as the 10th best album of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine in 2004.
The White Album was meant to be the record that brought the Beatles 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 songwriting powers, with Lennon in particular growing into one of music'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
