A couple of months ago this interesting Dust and Grooves article about a performance artist named Rutherford Chang really grabbed my attention.
You see, Rutherford Chang is a Beatles collector who only collects one particular Beatles album.
It’s the double LP that comes comes in the plain white cover and is simply called The Beatles….or as it’s more colloquially known: The White Album.
You can take a look at a video featuring Chang’s very large collection here.
And then there’s the rather amazing beatlealbum.com website, dedicated solely to exploring every aspect of The Beatles.
All this got me wondering. How many copies of The White Album do you have in your collection?
They can be on vinyl, compact disc, 8-track tape, reel-to-reel, cassette…or maybe even as a digital download.
I added up the copies in my collection in various formats and it comes to a total of 16 copies in all. That’s 5 x CDs, and 11 x LPs…nothing on Chang’s extensive collection!
But I’d be very interested to hear from you.
How many do you have?

This is one I had back in the day.
I do have some other albums & 45 however.
Have recentlt started looking around for what I can find.
Recently purchased 2 45 sleeves, no record. But they are pristine.
