The only Beatles album that I really dig.

Bought it in the mid 80s after hearing 'Cry Baby Cry' on a mate's 'mix tape'...
"The one who would whistle to Throbbing Gristle through harsh times in Umberstone Covert."

Emerick in his book ,"Here,There and Everywhere" states that the White Album is "virtually unlistenable". (Could be because he had nothing to do with it - he did the psychedelic-era Beatles albums and Abbey Road.)

I thought he resigned during the sessions. RIP.
