Beatles' process for making 'White Album' taxed producer

NEW YORK (AP) — Beatles producer George Martin would wince at fans who said that the "White Album" was their favorite record by the band.

That's from his son, Giles Martin, who was in charge of putting together a 50th anniversary package of the double album. The project is packed with outtakes and punchier, remixed versions of the original songs and is due out Nov. 9.

Giles Martin says his father likes things to be organized, and the "White Album" sessions were anything but. The Beatles would often work in exhausting all-night sessions.

Eventually, Martin says his father grew to appreciate the work.
