6-1-18: M.L. Liebler will be unable to attend this program. Bob Koski will be speaking instead, alon with Aaron Krerowicz. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The Beatles’ only double-album, The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album) is the band’s most individualized and stylistically diverse work. Many people argue that The White Album should have been released as a single-album, but no two people seem to agree on which half should be kept and which half should be discarded.

In this program, two Beatles experts (Aaron Krerowicz and M.L. Liebler) will make the case for why all 30 tracks should be kept, and the audience will discuss and debate the merits of each song in order to distill the double-album down to a single disc.

Registration is required. To register, click here or call 586.751.5377.
