The Beatles: The Beatles (The White Album)
Episode date - November 30, 2012
It soon became all too common, but back in 1968, double albums were a rarity. Popular examples of double albums that precede “The Beatles” include Dylan’s ‘Blonde on Blonde’, Frank Zappa’s “Freak Out”, but I can’t think of many others.
This meant that “The Beatles” felt like a mother lode of new material, especially since the album was rather generous in its length, featuring over ninety minutes of music and averaging 7 ½ songs per side. It has taken us three shows to cover the album – this being the third and final entry….or is it?
Songs featured in this program include;
1) Revolution 1
2) Honey Pie
3) Savoy Truffle
4) Cry Baby Cry
5) Revolution 9
6) Good Night
7) Yes Blues (The Dirty Mac – Rock and Roll Circus version)
8) Christmas 1968
