3. 'The White Album'

Band relations had sunk to a new low when The Beatles began recording The White Album in 1968. Things got so bad that Ringo even quit in the middle of recording, leaving Paul to play drums on a few tracks. The double LP is more a collection of four solo projects rather than a cohesive album, but it still adds up to a magnificent whole. There are too many classics to list, but here are a few: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "Back In The U.S.S.R.," "Dear Prudence" and "Blackbird."
