The album has been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin (son of the late George Martin, who produced Abbey Road) along with mix engineer Sam Okell. This release follows the other 50th Anniversary editions of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (2017) and the White Album (2018). Both of these releases were widely heralded by Beatles fans worldwide, who praised the Giles Martin production, who working with Sam Okell, has now remastered 'Abbey Road' from the original eight-track session tapes.
For a deeper dive into this special anniversary, fans should explore the Abbey Road triple vinyl deluxe box set, which features unreleased studio mixes and alternate takes.
First issued on 26th September, 1969 Abbey Road was the final Beatles album to be recorded but not their last to be released. Let It Be, though mainly recorded in January, 1969 was finally released in May, 1970 alongside the film of the same name.
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.
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 1969.
50th Anniversary heavyweight vinyl produced by Apple Records in 2019. This edition features the new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original eight-track session tapes. To produce the mix, Giles Martin working with Sam Okell, was guided by the album's original stereo mix supervised by his father, George Martin.
