Just on this, I was scanning one of my reference books and found that these were the songs on The White Album that all four Beatles played on:

Glass onion
Bungalow Bill
While my guitar ...
Happiness is a Warm Gun
I'm so Tired
Rocky raccoon
Birthday
Yer blues
Everybody's got something to hide ...
Sexy Sadie
Helter Skelter
Revolution
Honey pie
Cry baby cry

So there you go. It even equates to the usual 14 songs. The true Beatles White Album. No solo acts. No Paul substituting for Ringo's on drums or George songs where John grumpily absented himself.

Other than Revolution 9 & Good Night, this is my fav Beatles LP, followed by pretty much everything else they ever did!  icon_good

I just cringe when I hear #9  :-X

I think Revolution 9 is a waste of album space they had other songs recorded  that could been on there  in it place. Good night is a great track I Love the mono track of Helter Skelter it way better than the Stereo mix

I always skip Revolution 9, too. I'd rather they had What's The New Mary Jane in its place. But no matter. We got both anyway.

Wonder if that's Johns lead guitar on Honey Pie... it sounds a bit like him

Well according to Wikipedia it says George Harrison said John played Guitar on Honey pie It also give gives credit to both John & Paul. so the debate continues!

I'm pretty sure it's John. I think he's being quoted as saying it's him and Paul praises John's work on the solo

John was on fire in 1968.  He gets my vote.

Fantastic single album.

I did pair the LP down to make a single CD and had no problem removing: 1) Revolution 9, 2) Good Night, 3) Honey Pie, 4) Wild Honey Pie, and unfortunately 5) Long, Long, Long.

I like "Birthday" and "Martha, my Dear" the most from the White Album.  I like the piano parts in "Martha."  I've always liked John's "I'm so tired."  Whenever I hear it, I will compulsively sing it over and over for at least 2 to 3 days, being completely unable to stop.

I had a girlfriend at the time who hated "Birthday."  She thought it was stupid and didn't make any sense.  Well, we broke up later and not because of the song.  I needed to find a girlfriend who liked all the Beatles songs I liked but I never did!  This is why I've been single all my life.
