White Album Cover with The Beatles Embossed and Serial NumberThe double album released on November 22, 1968, though more commonly known as “The White Album”, is actually eponymously titled The Beatles. There are no photos on the plain white cover of the album, and the only text is the band’s name (and a serial number on the early LP and CD releases). Earlier pressings of the album had the band’s name embossed, and others have it printed in gray.

Originally the album was titled A Doll’s House. That name was given up when it was discovered that British progressive rock band Family released an album with the similar title of Music in a Doll’s House.

The Beatles was the first album to be released by the band’s own record label, Apple.
