All About Abbey Road by The Beatles

Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band The Beatles. Though Let It Be was the last album released before The Beatles’ dissolution in 1970, work on Abbey Road began in April 1969, making it the final album recorded by the band.

Abbey Road was released on 26 September 1969 in the United Kingdom, and 1 October 1969 in the United States. It was produced and orchestrated by George Martin for Apple Records. Geoff Emerick was engineer, Alan Parsons was assistant engineer, and Tony Banks was tape operator.

Abbey Road is regarded as one of The Beatles’ most tightly constructed albums, although the band was barely operating as a functioning unit at the time. Rolling Stone magazine named it the 14th greatest album of all time.
