British sensation The Beatles released their 11th studio album, Abbey Road, on September 26, 1969 in the United Kingdom and October 1, 1969 in the United States. Abbey Road was the last album recorded by The Beatles, although Let it Be was the last album released before they disbanded in 1970.
Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, Abbey Road was a commercial success and continually tops all-time lists year after year. The cover art features John, Ringo, Paul, and George on a crosswalk (on Abbey Road) and has become quite an iconic album cover.
The album features such classic Beatles songs as “Come Together”, “Something”, “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”, “Oh! Darling”, “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” and “Here Comes the Sun”. The songs and the album itself have been covered many times by a variety of artists across different genres.
