New York-based composer/producer Scott Freiman has immersed himself in the Beatles’ creative process – how they made their sound – and here he takes us into the studio with The Beatles as they create the bestselling album of all albums of the ’60s, The Beatles (aka the White Album).

Released in 1968, the White Album’s thirty songs span almost every style of music — from hard rock to country to chamber music to avant garde. Its recording took place during a remarkable year in Beatles history that included a lengthy trip to India and the arrival of Yoko Ono. Freiman deconstructs the creation of some of the Beatles’ most memorable songs, such as “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and “Revolution”, from demo to final version. He also covers the recording of “Hey Jude”, the Beatles’ most successful single and discusses the studio techniques used by the Beatles during 1968 and shares many examples of rare audio and video of the Beatles in action.
