40 years ago this month, the White Album was released by The Beatles. The White Album is perhaps my favorite from The Beatles - with classics like "while My Guitar gently weeps" and "helter skelter" - whimsical tracks such as "rocky raccoon" and "why don't we do it in the road" and the head scratchers like "revolution #9" and "wild honey pie".

There's an interesting look back at the White Album on the All Songs Considered podcast: 'The White Album' 40 years later - with all sorts of interesting tidbits (Paul McCartney plays drums on 'Back in the U.S.S.R' after Ringo leaves the studio in a huff), recordings of practice sessions and songs that didn't make the cut. The podcast is worth a listen.
