    This has completely blown me away. In all fairness, I’m comparing it to an 80s Capital pressing (purple label which is a respectable pressing, and stereo).

    But in general, despite a poor comparison anyone can hear that this pressing is stunning. I have a mono phono pre amp which probably helps create that in your face but also 3d sound of a perfect mono pressing. I think what surprised me is the clarity and instrument separation.

      Having now owned a few different version of the white album, this is my personal favourite. For context i'm comparing against the infamous 1981 mono, the 2009 remaster and the new 2018 GIles Martin box set. The 2014 mono pressing is immaculate, no hiss, snaps, crackles or pops. The sound of the music is stellar, its almost three dimensional which is hard to wrap your head around because its mono, but it really does have a 3D thing going on. Dear Prudence for example, it fills the room with the intricacy of the playing, the vocal amazing, and new backing vocals i've never realised was there before, its beautiful.

      I've since sold the 1981 mono, i don't see the need to have two mono versions, the Giles Martin stereo mix deserves a shout too, if you can get a copy without defects that is, i returned 2 bad pressing, the 3rd being faultless and is quite exceptional. 2009 Stereo, don't bother..

      All the above is just my opinion, never listened to any 1960s pressings so cannot comment.

        This Mono copy surprisingly sounds holographic at times and very punchy…I have since upgraded my whole system since my initial review.
        I honestly think this is a great sounding album.
        I still prefer a “-1” stereo… but this is just as enjoyable.
        Awesome album

            Excellent and truly special pressing of this classic. The gatefold, inner sleeves and embossing are top class.
            I will always have mixed feelings on the mono vs stereo debate. The mono is punchier and the bass sounds fuller and deeper, some songs easily smoke the stereo (most of the loud/raw Lennon cuts), but other songs get cluttered (While My Guitar...). Also both Revolutions being fold downs makes me sad. I mostly listen to Sides A & B from this and C & D from an older stereo pressing.
            If you truly love this album, I recommend pulling the trigger on this plus a stereo copy of your choice. I paid $50 back in 2019 which I considered pricy, but now very worth it.

              Can anyone tell me if the four photos are the same as the photos in the 2018 reissue or are they more like the originals

                Worth the hype for sure. Sounds clear and full. I’d take this over the last two White Album pressings I’ve owned. Not a huge Beatles fan but so glad I bought this, worth every penny.

                  This one is really brilliant. Clean, dynamic Optimal pressed vinyl. The White Album rocks in mono but it’s hard to find, especially when you consider there’s only really two other versions out there you can buy (1968 original + 1981 reissue) which are both worth £££ and difficult to obtain in top condition. The sleeve reproduction, inserts and photos are all top notch. Contender for one of the best reissues of recent times? I think so. Highly recommend if you love this album.

                    Grab a copy of this if you can. The sound quality is stellar, the mixes are represented spectacularly. You'll never hear the White Album in mono any better IMO.

                      Pretty shocking reading the reviews, as this is one hell of a great sounding record. You know a mono mix is properly cut when it sounds three dimensional. Although some tracks are simply not as enjoyable in mono, it’s still a good cut. Plus, you dont have to worry about crappy inner sleeves that the first mono pressing had, as well as the 1981 pressing. Lastly, drop dead quiet vinyl. Big W in my book
