- Robert's Record Corner has returned to discuss why the Beatles' so-called "White Album" wasn't the best album over a two-week period in 1968 that had a white album cover. Honors go to — as I explain in this snippet from the full episode (see bio link) — the Rolling Stones' "Beggars Banquet," a rawer acoustic-driven album that saw Keith's first open tunings and the debut of producer Jimmy Miller with the band. Unlike "Honey Pie" or even "Birthday" or "Obla-di Obla-da," this was the kind of record 1968 – a year of unrest, war, assassinations – was asking for. And with it the Rolling Stones stopped trying to follow the Beatles and found themselves. It's their most cohesive record. And where the "World's Greatest Rock'n'Roll Band" seeped out of the cracks of derivative blues, mod pop and fancy suits of the mid '60s. You might like the White Album. I do too. But it's less a record than a lab where the "Fab Four" threw everything they could think of at the wall, they scooped up what didn't stick – and stuffed it into the double album anyway. Beggars Banquet is frankly better than the White Album. It's more artistic, and a better statement for 1968. Ultimately, it is simply better than the Beatles, who were already showing signs of their inevitable decline. See link in bio to watch FULL VERSION of the video!
