THE BEATLES - The Beatles (aka White Album)

The Beatles is the ninth official album by the Beatles, a double album released in 1968. It is most often referred to as The White Album, as it has no text other than the band's name on its plain white sleeve, designed by pop artist Richard Hamilton. Originally planned to be titled A Doll's House, the album is often hailed as one of the major accomplishments in popular music.
In 1997, The Beatles was named the 10th greatest album of all time in a 'Music of the Millennium' poll conducted by HMV, Channel 4, The Guardian and Classic FM. In 1998, Q magazine readers placed it at number 17, while in 2000 the same magazine placed it at number 7 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. In 2001, the TV network VH1 named it as the 11th greatest album ever. It was also ranked number 10 in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time in 2003.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America, The Beatles is the Beatles' best-selling album at 19-times platinum and the ninth-best-selling album of all time in the United States. Note, that the RIAA counts sales of double albums twice for its rankings, and without this adjustment, The Beatles would be the Beatles' fourth best selling album in the US.
