In November 1968 The Beatles released their ninth studio album.
Featuring a plain white sleeve, the cover contains no graphics or text other than the band’s name embossed.
It was not a double album as rumours had predicted, it contained 13 tracks and ran for 39 minutes.
It is now widely recognised as their finest album and saw their transition into a serious rock band.
The Track listing was as follows:
Side 1 . Back in the USSR, Dear Prudence, Glass Onion, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Happiness is a Warm Gun. Blackbird. I Will.
Side 2 I’m So Tired. Birthday, Yer Blues, Mother Nature’s Son, Helter Skelter, Sexy Sadie.
