Limited Super Deluxe Edition 6CD + Blu-ray Audio Box Set!


The White Album celebrates its 50th Anniversary with Super Deluxe Edition 6CD & Blu-ray Audio Box Set!

The original album is augmented by 27 early acoustic demos and 50 session takes, most of which have never been released in any form. 

The album’s original 30 tracks, which include such all-time Beatles classics as ‘Back In The U.S.S.R.,’ ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ and ‘Dear Prudence,’ have been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio.

"Everything we know about the White Album is about to change. The Beatles’ 1968 masterpiece has always been the deepest mystery in their story—their wildest, strangest, most experimental, most brilliant music. But as it turns out, the White Album is even weirder than anyone realized...

"Part of the White Album mystique is all the drama that went into it—the arguments and bad vibes are the stuff of legend. So the big shock is all the humor, excitement, and camaraderie on display in the new set. Case in point: a previously unknown version of “Good Night” where John, Paul, George and Ringo all harmonize over folk guitar. As Martin admits, “You listen to them sing together and ask, ‘This is the White Album?...”

"The Deluxe and Super Deluxe Editions finally unveil the Esher demos, which hardcore Beatle freaks have been clamoring to hear for years. In May 1968, just back from India, the group gathered at George’s bungalow in Esher (pronounced “Ee-sher”) to tape unplugged versions of the new songs they’d already stockpiled for the new album. Over the next days, working together or solo, they busked 27 songs. The tapes sat in a suitcase in George’s house for years. Seven tracks came out on Anthology 3; others have never been released in any Beatle version, including John’s “Child of Nature” and George’s “Sour Milk Sea.” The Esher tapes alone make this collection essential, with a fresh homemade intimacy that’s unique. Martin says, “They’re rough takes, but spiritually, the performances stand on their own.”

"Of course, the essence of the White Album is that everyone hears it differently—including the Beatles themselves. They clashed over what to include, what to leave out, whether it should have been edited down to a single record. (Years later, in the Anthology documentary, they were still arguing over it.) This edition will fire up those arguments. But even for fans who know the original album inside out, it’s a whole new experience—one that will permanently change how we think and talk about the Beatles."
