‘Reconsidering The White Album’
Edited by Mark Osteen
Published by University of Michigan Press
The White Album, one of the most influential albums of all time, gets the book it so richly deserves in this fine collection of essays.
Highlights include Steve Hamelman’s essay on the criminally-underrated Ringo Starr and Kenneth Womack’s excellent piece on George Martin’s work both with and outside of The Beatles. Mention must also be made of Russell Reisling’s terrific ‘The Beatles and the Fruits of Psychedelia’.
A most worthy companion to a most worthy album.
