It was this week back in 1968 that the Beatles were the subject of a Newsweek article that notes the double-disc White Albumsold more than a million copies in it's first five days in stores. The magazine's critic gives the 25 song package a mixed review. ...ending with the comment, "With some judicious editing, the Beatles could have turned out a real fine album of 1 LP...not two. And maybe they could have even put a picture on the cover". I like the White Album a lot. The record was written mostly during the Beatles Maharishi days of meditation. There was already bad feelings in the band, and this was the first record that would be made without the comfortable presence of Brian Epstein. Nonetheless, it's a great collection of songs and we will play some of those this Saturday at the Revolution. We'll also have the Spencer Davis Group, Moody Blues, Early Grace Slick, Jethro Tull, Donovan, The Stones, The Doors and many more hanger-ons. Birthday wishes go out to Allman Brother Greg Allman (63) and Dicky Betts (67). Also a moment of silence for our soul brother Otis Redding who died 43 years ago this weekend. Join me for our weekly revelation of the revolution. It's hip, it's happening, it's free. 7am. Peace Out.
