3 Hour Expanded Edition! Released in 1968, "The Beatles" (aka, The White Album) contained thirty songs spanning 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. This deconstruction traces the stories and studio techniques behind the creation of some of the Beatles' most memorable songs from demo to final version, including "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Revolution", and "Hey Jude", the band's most successful single.

David Johnson leads our dive into making sense of Lynch's toughest nut.
