The Beatles The Beatles [White Album] - 1st [b] - Complete UK 2-LP vinyl record set (Double LP Album)
Tracklisting / Additional Info: Condition:
The sleeve and all its contents are beautifully clean, pure white and unmarked.
This is pretty much as it was in 1968 when it was bought.

The Apple labels have 'Sold in the UK' & 'An EMI Recording' text. The matrix numbers all end '-1' and are as follows indicating that this copy was among the first pressed:

Side One XEX 709-1
Side Two XEX 710-1
Side Three XEX 711-1
Side Four XEX 712-1

The vinyl is amazing condition, with NO spindle marks evident around the centre hole and NO marks on the vinyl. This copy is as near 'as new' as you are ever going to see. There may be other copies out there but there are none better.

A truly astonishing one owner copy. The first one of these we've seen in over four years that comes even close to this condition and definitely one of the best copies on the planet. It can't be described as 'Mint' as it has been played, but it really is not that far off it.

Background:
Because the Beatles' albums up to this point were mixed in Mono first, then in Stereo rather than the Mono mix being simply a fold down of the stereo mix, there are often significant differences between the Mono & Stereo mixes.
The White Album is probably the most varied when it comes to Mono and Stereo differences and a summation of the most significant is given below:

Back In The U.S.S.R.
The airplane overdubs occur in different places on the mono and stereo versions. The Mono version has louder piano, a yell after the opening plane sound, and drumbeats under the closing plane sound. The Stereo version has extra guitar chords at the start of the solo, and shouts and piano during the guitar solo.

Glass Onion
The Stereo mix is lacking Paul’s added vocal “oh yeah” at the end of the break. The Mono mix has various sound effects.

Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da
The stereo version has hand-clapping during the intro, the mono version does not. On the mono mix, Paul’s vocals are not double-tracked as they sound to be on the stereo mix.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps
The stereo version has some vocal sounds from George at the end, the mono version does not. Eric Clapton's guitar remains loud in the mono version after the solo break, not in the Stereo version. Near the end of the fadeout only the stereo has “yeah yeah yeah”, even though it is a few second shorter than the Mono mix.

Blackbird
The bird sound effects are quite different between the stereo and the mono release.

Piggies
The pig sound effects are quite different between the stereo and the mono release. The guitar is louder in the mono version.

Don’t Pass Me By
The mono version is much faster than the stereo, and therefore is shorter. The violin sounds at the end are markedly different.

Why Don’t We Do It In The Road
The stereo version has hand-clapping during the intro, the mono version does not.

Sexy Sadie
The stereo version has two taps on the tambourine during the intro, the mono version only has one.

Helter Skelter
The stereo version has a fade-out/fade-in dummy ending with Ringo’s shout of “I’ve got blisters on my fingers”, the mono version does not, this makes the stereo version almost a minute longer.

Long, Long, Long
The mono version has George’s double-tracked vocal slightly out of synch.

Honey Pie
The stereo version has a shorter guitar solo than the mono version.

Revolution 9
Although the mono was made from the stereo, the opening lines are more clear in mono.

Everybody’s Got Something To Hide (Except Me and My Monkey)
The screaming after “come on” in the last verse is different in the Stereo and Mono versions.

Revolution
John’s guitar sounds louder in the mono version.

Yer Blues
In stereo, traces of other vocal and guitar parts can be heard throughout the song in the left channel, including something shouted over parts of the vocal and what sounds like another different guitar solo. The countdown intro is louder in mono. The Mono version is 11 seconds longer.

I Will
The bass vocal starts later in the mono mix after the first verse. The stereo version has more prominent bongos.

Birthday
The stereo version has extra vocals at the end of the second chorus.

Happiness Is A Warm Gun
Mono has tapping (organ) on the beat from the start until the drums come in, but it is soft and mixed out 4 beats earlier in Stereo.Mono has louder bass in the “I need a fix” section & laughter near the very end, just before the last drumbeat.

Wild Honey Pie
Mono has the full lead guitar break, slightly shortened in the Stereo Version.

Savoy Truffle
Mono has sound effects during the instrumental break, and the lead guitar continues through the break into the refrain after it. The organ is missing from the last verse in the Mono Version.

Long Long Long
Doubletracking starts at the first “long” in stereo & the third “long” in Mono. In mono the rhythm guitar is softer but the lead guitar is louder, especially in the later part of the song.

I’m So Tired
Paul’s harmony at the first “You’d say” is louder in mono.
