Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by British rock band The Beatles, originally released on 26 September 1969 via Apple Records.

After the difficult recording sessions the band had undertaken in January 1969 at the Twikenham Film Studios to make a more stripped back album to be called Get Back / Let It Be, the band agreed to regroup with George Martin at the helm as producer to record what would be the final Beatles studio album.

The album was structured with two themes, Side A containing individual songs and Side B containing a thematic medley of songs comprised of shorter snippets of material. The styles of music range from rock to progressive rock to pure pop.

The album opens with a cracker of a rock song Lennon's “Come Together” then moves onto one of the best pop songs every written, George Harrison's “Something”. Paul McCartney's pop song “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” is followed by a more rocky song “Oh! Darling” and then we move to Ringo's song “Octopus's Garden” and finally closing the album with Lennon's amazing stoner/prog rock song “I Want You (She's So Heavy)”. What a set of songs - a strong opening and closing, one of the most memorable sides of music in rock history.

Side B kicks off with another amazing Harrison composition, “Here Comes The Sun”, followed by John Lennon's “Because” and then the 16 minute Medley of songs that end appropriately with “The End”. There is a hidden track “Her Majesty” included at the very end of Side B.

The album cover is one of the most iconic in popular music history and was shot outside the Abbey Road Studios in London, and is the only Beatles album not to list the album name or band on the cover.

Abbey Road had mixed reviews upon release, however it has since been regarded by music critics as one of The Beatles best albums and one of the greatest albums of all time.

The album reached #1 on the album charts in many countries including the US, UK, Australia and Canada.

This is one of the greatest albums of all time and is an essential addition to any record collection.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the release of Abbey Road, the album has been newly remixed and reissued in multiple formats with additional material. The 17 tracks have been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell, accompanied by 23 session recordings and demos, most of them previously unreleased.

Martin and Ozell worked on the new Abbey Road mixes with Abbey Road’s expert team of engineers and audio restoration specialists. All of the editions feature the new stereo album mix, sourced from the original eight-track session tapes. Giles Martin used the original stereo mix by his father George Martin as his guide. Says Giles Martin in his written introduction: “The magic comes from the hands playing the instruments, the blend of The Beatles’ voices, the beauty of the arrangements. Our quest is simply to ensure everything sounds as fresh and hits you as hard as it would have on the day it was recorded.

This LP Record is the 2019 remixed standard album on 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl, pressed in Europe.
