The White Album came at an interesting time for the Beatles because they had almost gone off in different directions creatively after Pepper. A lot of people talk about the White Album being a sort of dysfunctional album, however what we’ve found from going through the tapes is the sessions were in really good spirit throughout. There was a bond with the band, there was a relationship, and there’s laughter on the tapes. It was a different process with the White Album. I think they felt free. It was almost like the lunatics taking over the asylum. They felt like they could do whatever they wanted in the studio – and they did. – Giles Martin
