    1. The Beatles sprawling self titled album, commonly called the White Album due to its sleeve, is considered their magnum opus in the US, but the critical opinion in Britain tends to mark it behind the likes of Rubber Soul , Revolver and Sgt Pepper For me, as for the writer of this slap dash appreciation of the people and circumstances surrounding the recording, the American s have got it right Certainly I play the album than any of the others, which is the best measure With regards the people who [...]

    2. This book says absolutely nothing which isn t said intelligently and concisely in Revolution in the Head by the late Ian Macdonald and that book covers ALL the Beatles records The blurb on the back of this book says that it s from a series called The Vinyl Frontier dedicated to examining the making of truly extraordinary albums Too bad they chose the White Album The Beatles records have been examined and re examined until even the dedicated fan like me groans at the idea of a new book about the [...]

    3. I really enjoyed reading this while listening to the White Album all the way through It was the first cassette tape in my car at 16, so I have a lot of memories of driving around with the windows down, singing Dear Prudence with my little sister This book gave some great insight to the making of this album, and is surprisingly funny to boot.

    4. Not the most scholarly book ever, but in my opinion it is potato chip reading at its finest The author gives what information he s found on each song s origin and recording process sometimes a lot, sometimes very little and throws in his own humorous comments and criticisms along the way While I often disagreed with the author s views, I found him charismatic, which is required to enjoy the book There is also a section about the Manson White Album connection that is masterfully written.I disagre [...]

    5. Bought this secondhand yesterday completed reading it today Not a demanding read, but it is both an interesting and enjoyable read and a useful reminder of the sheer breadth of subject and quality of the Beatles work Having said all of that, because this book reads fairly full of personal opinion and analysis, much of which seemed familiar, I should very much like to have seen the author support his arguments with full references of sources consulted An opportunity missed.I DID value the chapter [...]

    6. Other reviews are quick to point out that there s much comprehensive coverage of this monolithic album to be found by other authors However, I feel it s a case of whatever book you read first Of course this is going to seem thin on the ground if you get to this second in the pile As it happens, this book was the first I found and almost completely by accident I found the author honest, critiquing tracks he wasn t fond of and doesn t heap praise on The Beatles to the point it s uncomfortable The [...]

    7. A quick read I blew through this thing in the space of one lazy Sunday but a rich source of information about a fascinating album Hardcore Beatle fans probably know all the dirt in this book, but music geeks and casual fans alike will find a ton of trivia about The Beatles circa 1968 My only problem with the book was that I didn t need as much critical analysis as the author was happy to offer, though taking his cheers and jeers with a grain of salt helped me to enjoy the good stuff in this book [...]

    8. I love the white album and I love it even now The author gives a very comprehensive overview of everything that has to do with the album, including events that happened in the beatles lives, political events and other albums that came out in 1968 The subjective view makes for a interesting read but it sometimes gets a little bit in the way of forming your own opinion about the subject.

    9. A very good read Well written with the perfect blend of interesting stuff and decent sized dollops of fun Pretty essential for any Beatles fan, but it would entertain all lovers of music making generally You ll want the record to hand while you read

    10. My obsession with The Beatles continues to grow It was so interesting to get some context for these songs, both in what was happening in the band at the time and events in the world.
