1968: The Beatles’ much anticipated White Album (The Beatles) is released in the U.K. The double-disc set comes in the iconic white sleeve and includes color portraits of the Boys and a mind-bending poster. The music is wonderful, including Dear Prudence, Helter-Skelter, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Back in the USSR and the beautiful, haunting Blackbird. The album will be atop U.K. charts for eight weeks.
