The power of rock and roll is a constantly amazing process. Although it is Bob Dylan who is the single most important figure in rock and roll; and although it is the Rolling Stones who are the embodiment of a rock and roll band; it is nonetheless Our Boys. The Beatles, who are the perfect product and result of everything that rock and roll means and encompasses. Never has this been so plainly evident as on their new two-album set. The Beatles (Apple SWBO 101).
Whatever else it is or isn’t, it is the best album they have ever released, and only the Beatles are capable of making a better one.
Over 50 years after the The Beatles’ ‘White Album’ first stormed the charts, the Fab Four’s iconic double-album achieved 24-time Platinum-certified status – making it the fourth-highest certified release in US history.
The Beatles currently have the distinction as being the highest certified band in Gold and Platinum Award history, with 178 million certifications across their discography. Both 1967-1970 and 1962-1966 compilations along with Abbey Road and Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band have far surpassed Diamond certification.
After wild discussions, deliberating on where they should play - “The QE2?” “The pyramids?” - the band surprised passersby when they appeared unannounced on the rooftop of their Savile Row offices, playing a 42-minute set despite protests from the police
