Abbey Road is 50 Years Old

Can you believe it? 50 years since the iconic image of the four lads crossing Abbey Road in front of the famed studio where it was recorded. 

 

The anniversary album debuted yesterday.

When the Beatles Walked Offstage: Fifty Years of “Abbey Road”

About that iconic album cover: 

 

For the only time in their career, The Beatles presented the world with an album cover that didn’t feature their name, or the title of the LP at all. Designer John Kosh claimed that EMI bosses were furious, but argued: “The biggest band in the world, you don’t have to say who they are - everyone knows who they are.”

Somewhat sad to me as Abbey Road was meant to be The Beatles statement and wasn't considered that but just music...

 

Miss you so much, John and George...

 

Power on, Ringo!

Hard to believe this album is 50! Even harder to believe, for me, that I remember when it was released lol. It has always been one of my favorite Beatles albums of all time. Literally every song on the album is great. I especially love The Abbey Road Medley ( as it’s been called) One of the best songs they ever recorded. Again, just another reason why they are the GREATEST band of all time. I always remember that beautiful line “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” Pure musical genius 😎
