Commonly known as the "White Album", the Beatles' ninth official album released in 1968 is formally titled "The Beatles".
The album was recorded during a period of turmoil to the point that drummer Ringo Starr left the band briefly leaving Paul McCartney to perform drums for some of the songs on the album.
"Beyond its stylish minimalism, the essentially blank cover of The Beatles, better known as the White Album, served a symbolic purpose. The band could find no honest way to visually represent itself as a coherent unit. Each of the three main songwriters was pursuing his own vision, with the other members, however reluctantly, serving as backup musicians. Once a whole far greater than the sum of its parts, the Beatles were now a tense alliance of daunting individual talents. The Beatles became a double album in part because John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison all insisted that their favorite songs be included." - www.rollingstone.com
The album reached the number one spot on the charts both in the UK and the US and has been ranked number 10 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Guest musicians include Eric Clapton on guitar for the song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and Yoko Ono's backing vocals and handclaps on "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill".
