Released September 26, 1969, Abbey Road was not The Beatles' final album, as Let It Be followed in 1970, but it was the last one John, Paul, George, and Ringo recorded together as a band. The Beatles will celebrate Abbey Road's anniversary with a suite of beautifully presented packages to be released worldwide on September 27 by Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/Universal Music Enterprises.
Giles Martin, working with Sam Okell, from the original eight-track session tapes, was guided by the album's original mix supervised by his father, George Martin.
"The magic comes from the hands playing the instruments, the blend of The Beatles' voices, the beauty of the arrangements," Giles Martin explains in his written introduction for the new edition. "Our quest is simply to ensure everything sounds as fresh and hits you as hard as it would have on the day it was recorded."
Ringo Starr tells interviewers: "I've loved all the re-releases because of the remastering, and you can hear the drums, which got dialed down in the old days."
