Beatles – Abbey Road (50th Anniversary Edition on 180g Vinyl)
This 50th anniversary edition includes Giles Martin and Sam Okell’s new stereo remix, which was sourced directly from the original eight-track session tapes.
Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by the the Beatles, released on 26 September 1969. Named after the location of EMI Studios in London, the cover features the group walking across the street’s zebra crossing, an image that became one of the most famous and imitated in popular music. The album’s initially mixed reviews were contrasted by its immediate commercial success, topping record charts in the UK and US.

The Beatles – Abbey Road (50th Anniversary Edition on 180g Vinyl)
Abbey Road incorporates genres such as blues, rock and pop, and makes prominent use of Moog synthesizer, sounds filtered through a Leslie speaker, and tom-tom drums. It is the Beatles’ only album recorded exclusively through a solid-state transistor mixing desk, which afforded a clearer and brighter sound than the group’s previous records. Side two contains a medley of shorter song fragments.
Upon release, detractors found Abbey Road to be inauthentic and bemoaned the production’s artificial effects. Since then, many critics have hailed the album as the Beatles’ finest and a contender for the greatest album of all time; in particular, Something and Here Comes the Sun are considered among the best songs George Harrison wrote for the group.
