Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by The Beatles, released September
26, 1969. The album was named after the location of the EMI studio in London. The
cover of the album consists of the band’s members walking across the crosswalk on
Abbey Road. The length of the album lasts 47:03. George Martin was the producer of
the album. This album incorporates different genres such as blues, rock, and pop.
Shortly after the release of the album conspiracy theories came up about the cover of
the album having connections to Paul McCartney’s supposed death. The Rolling Stones
magazine ranked this album fifth on the list of greatest albums of all time. The EMI
studio renamed their studio to Abbey Road studio in honor of the album. This album
was one of the first Beatles albums to be recorded using an 8-track reel-to-reel tape
machine rather than a 4-track reel-to-reel tape machine.
In my opinion Abbey Road is probably one of the most influential rock albums of
all time. Some of my favorite songs in this album are “Here Comes The Sun”,
“Something”, “Golden Slumbers”, and “Come Together.” The Beatles are said to be the
biggest rock band in the world and when they released this album, being their eleventh
album, it gained a lot of popularity.
