"If you want to quickly know if you're going to like Giles Martin's The Beatles remixes start with 'Long, Long, Long.' If you don't like that one, you're probably not going to like the rest, but for me, that remix in particular is far superior to the one on the two original "Top Loader" U.K. pressings I have: more transparent and more spacious, with a holographic George front, center and three-dimensional as he's not presented on the original. ... Martin left mostly intact what was familiar and comfortable to long time listeners. If anything, the vocals sound richer, more velvety and more coherently believable than on the original. ...All of this said, the reissue does not sound like the original U.K. pressing nor was it intended to. Yet it remains true to the original’s intent, in part because there was less Mr. Martin could do to change it." — Michael Fremer, Analogplanet.com, Oct. 23, 2018. Read the entire reivew here.

"'Happiness is a Warm Gun' and 'Martha My Dear' sounded fully present and accounted for. When the band fell in on '...take a good look around you' it gave me shivers! Get it." — Sasha Matson, Stereophile.com, Nov. 11, 2018. Read the entire review here.

Exactly 50 years since this Beatles' self-titled LP first appeared (it went on to become better known by its unofficial name, due to its plain white cover), the Fab Four are serving up an anniversary reissue, complete with new mixes and previously unheard demos and session recordings.

The famous album's 30 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin, son of original album producer George Martin, and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio, sourced directly from the original 4-track and 8-track session tapes.

The White Album — originally intended to be called The Beatles, but got its nickname thanks to the all white cover — has a lot of hits on it. "Back in the USSR," "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "Helter Skelter," and "Revolution 1" are just the tip of the iceberg. Every track is someone's favorite, from "Savoy Truffle" to "Dear Prudence."

"We had left Sgt. Pepper's band to play in his sunny Elysian Fields and were now striding out in new directions without a map," says Paul McCartney in his written introduction for the new White Album release.

Presented here in its 2LP standard vinyl configuration, this anniversary reissue was plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. It features pull-out reproductions of the original album's four glossy color portrait photographs of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, as well as a lyric sheet and poster.

The White Album was the first Beatles album to be released on the group's own Apple Records label. Issued in both stereo and mono for the U.K. and in stereo for the U.S., the double album was an immediate bestseller, entering the British chart at number one and remaining there for eight of the 22 weeks it was listed. The White Album also debuted at number one on the U.S. chart, holding the top spot for nine weeks of its initial 65-week chart run. In the U.S., The White Album is 19-times platinum-certified by the RIAA and in 2000, it was inducted into the Recording Academy's Grammy Hall of Fame, recognizing "recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance."
