The 50th anniversary edition of The Beatles’ White Album won’t be out until November 9th, but the seven-disc Super Deluxe edition already shot to the top of Amazon’s Best Sellers list. The charts fluctuate regularly and as of tonight (Wednesday), it’s at two. The four-disc set went to number-five.
The White Album will be celebrated at a symposium at Monmouth University in Long Branch, New Jersey from November 8th to the 11th. It will kick off the night of the 8th, leading to a midnight listening party. Special guests at the party and throughout the weekend include keynote speaker and Beatles biographer Mark Lewisohn, along with their recording engineer Geoff Emerick and producer Chris Thomas, both of whom worked on the original album in 1968.
