In third place with a well-deserved 16% of the overall vote is The Beatles ninth, self-titled LP, often referred to as The White Album. Most of the songs were written during the band’s period of ‘transcendental meditation’ with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Rishikesh, India.
The album features George Harrison’s arguably best song to date While My Guitar Gently Weeps while Yoko Ono’s influence also becomes apparent with Revolution 9.
FACT: The album was originally titled A Doll’s House but the name was dropped after British prog outfit Family released the similarly-titled LP, Music In A Doll’s House, four months earlier.
