Abbey Road will be next Beatles’ box-set


Album Abbey Road first issued on 26th September 1969, was the final Beatles album to be recorded but not their last to be released.

In January 1969, the group gathered to record what would eventually see release in 1970 as the film and soundtrack album Let It Be.

“I’ve loved all the re-releases because of the remastering,” Starr tells Billboard. “You can hear the drums, which got dialed down in the old days.”

Following the ‘live’ nature of the “Let It Be” recordings, for Abbey Road, The Beatles returned to the North London studios to create carefully crafted recordings with ambitious musical arrangements. Interestingly, 12 of the songs that appeared on the finished album were played during the filmed rehearsals and sessions for “Let It Be” back in January.

On July 4, Giles Martin tweeted a photo of a recording console. While it’s speculation, the photo was likely taken at the famed Abbey Road Studios, where Martin produced both recent anniversary packages and followed by the final verse of the album: And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.

Nothing has been announced yet. At a September 26, 2018, presentation in New York City to introduce the deluxe edition of the White Album to the press, producer Giles Martin was asked about plans for a similar expanded treatment of Abbey Road. Martin politely deflected, indicating that the focus at that time was on the enormous task that had been completed on the expanded White Album. “I haven’t given it any thought,” he said.


For the first time on a Beatles album, the front cover contained neither the group’s name nor the album title just that iconic photograph taken on the zebra crossing near the entrance to the studios in London NW8 in August

Abbey Road entered the British album chart at no.1 in October and stayed there for a total of seventeen of its 81 weeks in the chart. In the US, it spent eleven weeks at #1 during its initial chart stay of 83 weeks.

The Making Of Abbey Road


“I was quite surprised when Paul rang me up and said, ‘We’re going to make another record, would you like to produce it?’ and my immediate answer was, ‘Only if you let me produce it the way we used to.’ and he said, ‘We do want to do that’ and I said, ‘John included?’ and he said, ‘Yes, honestly.'”GEORGE MARTIN
