If Somebody Wants to Loan Me 28k…

I would buy THIS…

As most of you should know, the 40th anniversary of the release of the Beatles landmark album “The Beatles” (universally known as “The White Album”) is tomorrow (Nov. 22nd). The album proved to be a stark contrast aesthetically to the psychedelic look of its predecessor “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, and featured a plain white cover embossed with only two words, The Beatles. The first pressings of the album featured a serial number that made each copy of the album unique. The first four were given to the Beatles themselves along with twenty or so of the earliest numbers to each of the Beatles for giving out to friends. So to celebrate the birthday of one of my favorite albums, I thought I would canvass for donations to purchase a special vinyl copy of the album that is up for sale on the UK counterpart of eBay. No. 0000005 is the lowest number White Album ever to be put on the market, given to a “prominent musician” by John Lennon in 1968 while the musician was visiting him at his apartment in London. It eventually traveled its way through the hands of a few collectors and is now up for auction. Currently the going price for the album is about 28,000 US dollars…bleh.

If you are interested in donating to the Jason Is Pining For A One Of A Kind White Album Relief Fund (or JIPFAOOAKWA in acronym form) time is of the essence (2 days left!) and I can be reached at jason@massstreetmusic.com
