About Abbey Road

Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band the Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. 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. Lead single "Something" / "Come Together" was released in October and topped US charts. The album 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 their only album recorded exclusively through a solid-state transistor mixing desk, which afforded a clearer and brighter sound compared to the group's previous records. Side two contains a medley of song fragments edited together to form a single piece. The sessions also produced a non-album single, "The Ballad of John and Yoko" backed with "Old Brown Shoe".
