Last year, the 50th anniversary within the “Sgt. Pepper” album was a celebration. It included a remixed sort of the album, a mono version, and outtakes of tracks. The boxed set, retailing at exceeding $100, sold often, too. And imagine it– “Sgt. Pepper” is simply Half an hour long.
But now Let me tell you the 50th anniversary edition of “The White Album” is on its way, probably trying to find November 22nd– your day it was launched in 1968. A ‘Save the Date’ email went out to press today for any NY event on September 26th. That can only mean nutrients.
There a wide range of, many bootlegs of “White Album” outtakes skating worldwide. So Giles Martin, son lately legendary producer George Martin, had his work remove for him. But I’m thinking we’ll have a remixed sort of the main album, an outtakes CD, and perchance a mono mix too.
The White Album– originally should have been referred to as the Beatles, but took its nickname due to the all white cover– provides extensive hits on it. “In the USSR,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Helter Skelter,” and “Revolution 1” are just the tip with the iceberg. Every track is someone’s favorite, from “Savoy Truffle” to “Dear Prudence.”
These Beatles remixes are actually wonderful. The “1” album remix set with videos is fantastic, “Pepper” became a big success. If the White Album may be a Christmas blockbuster, next shall be “Abbey Road” in 2019 and “Give it time to Be” in 2020– and perhaps the “Give it time to Be” movie.
While you’re waiting, rewind and get the Beatles Mono Box Set. I read it everyday. It’s such as a Ringo fest, the drums are extremely good!
