Even today, The White Album, the double album that The Beatles released in the turbulence of 1968 has a particular resonance in the quality of its songwriting, never before or since would a Beatle album contain such biting social commentary or such a deluge of output in a wide variety of genres. Lost in the shuffle is the timeless “Long, Long, Long” a George Harrison number that would lay the groundwork for indie rock balladeers like Elliot Smith, an ironic result for a man whose work so often preached transcendance in spiritual form. Nevertheless, the quiet, and quite profound number that follows the chaos of “Helter Skelter” remains potent and important to this day.
