Frequently bought together
In November 1968, millions of double LPs were shipped to record stores worldwide ahead of that tumultuous year’s most anticipated music event: the November 22nd release of The BEATLES (soon to be better known as ‘The White Album’). With their ninth studio album, The Beatles took the world on a whole new trip, side one blasting off with the exhilarating rush of a screaming jet escorting Paul McCartney’s punchy, exuberant vocals on “Back In The U.S.S.R.” “Dear Prudence” came next, John Lennon warmly beckoning his friend and all of us to “look around.” George Harrison imparted timeless wisdom in “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” singing, “With every mistake we must surely be learning.” Ringo Starr’s “Don’t Pass Me By” marked his first solo songwriting credit on a Beatles album. For 50 years, ‘The White Album’ has invited its listeners to venture forth and explore the breadth and ambition of its music, delighting and inspiring each new generation in turn. On November 9, The Beatles will release a suite of lavishly presented ‘White Album’ packages (Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe). The album’s 30 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio, joined by 27 early acoustic demos and 50 session takes, most of which are previously unreleased in any form.

The White Album
This is the first time The BEATLES (‘White Album’) has been remixed and presented with additional demos and session recordings. To create the new stereo and 5.1 surround audio mixes for ‘The White Album,’ Martin and Okell worked with an expert team of engineers and audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios in London. All the new ‘White Album’ releases include 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.

I know this is a cliché especially at my age but the bass is awesome along with all the frequencies cut into the grooves. This album was cut using Half Speed mastering. For anybody not aware what this means here is an explanation. The master tape is played back at half speed and the vinyl cutting lath is also rotated at half speed and the end result is more information being cut into the groove and this record proves that it works ( Have a listen to the Brian Eno half speed master vinyl releases and you will know what I mean ). Had a smile on my face from start to finish but wait there is more!. Then listened to the Esher demo album and I must say that I enjoyed this even more, No electric guitar or electronics just acoustic and vocals and was a revelation. Considering this was recorded 50 years ago on George Harrison's own home recording equipment the quality of the recording is amazing. I know it was cleaned up using modern techniques but if you listen carefully you can still hear the hiss of the tape on some tracks and this is what makes the recording more magical. You will hear the Beatles as you never heard them before and in my opinion is what will prove that they were the greatest band this world has ever heard. In 50 years time when I am forgotten the next generations will be playing this and saying WOW!.
Do not hesitate buy this boxed set now or you will regret it when it is out of print.
Aber als ich die Box heute ausgepackt habe, habe ich mich schon ein bisschen über den Tisch gezogen gefühlt. Es sind zwei Doppelalben drin, ein kleines Faltblatt und die üblichen vier Bilder und das Poster. Das wars. Das Weiße Album hat hier weder eine eingestanzte Nummer noch ist es ein Toploader, wie die originalen Pressungen '68 waren. Bei der Mono-Version 2012 hat man das doch auch hinbekommen, warum hier nicht?
Wäre ja nicht sooo schlimm, wäre da nicht eins: der Preis. 80 Euro für zwei Doppelalben in einer Pappkiste ist zu viel, liebe Universal-Plattenfirma! Ein Doppelalbum (Beigaben hin oder her) kriege ich im Normalfall um etwa 23 Euro. Auch wenn ich noch großzügig 10 Euro für die Box hinzurechne, komme ich auf 56 Euro. 80 Tacken für so ein Produkt zu verlangen, das nicht mal besonders liebevoll gemacht ist, finde ich anmaßend.
Jetzt gleich mal auflegen und anhören, dann beruhige ich mich vielleicht wieder (:
