Classic album review: The Beatles 1968 iconic 'White Album'

Night Talk 05/11/2018

Every Monday night after the 10pm news, Mitch Harris is joined in studio by Marty Duda from online radio station Radio13 to look back at a classic album.

This week: Many people consider this album to be the greatest one of all-time. Better known as 'The White Album', the self-titled 1968 album by The Beatles was recorded at Abbey Road Studios and Trident Studios in London between May and October 1968.

Recording of the album was hugely problematic. After producer George Martin took a sudden leave of absence, engineer Geoff Emerick suddenly quit. Then Ringo Starr briefly left the band in August. These tensions continued until April 1970 when The Beatles broke up.

Tracks played:
1. Back in the U.S.S.R
2. Dear Prudence
3. The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill
4. Don't Pass Me By
5. Happiness is a Warm Gun
6. Rocky Raccoon
7. Glass Onion
8. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Night Talk with Mitch Harris, 8pm - 12am Monday to Thursday nights on RadioLIVE, and streaming live to the rova app on Android and iPhone.
