Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 5/500!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Something" - Rated 278/500!


Stereophile 2010 Record to Die For!

Officially the 11th UK album, Abbey Road was actually recorded after the Let It Be album (which was the band's final album to released as a group). Originally released in 1969, the album features "Come Together" and "Here Comes the Sun".

"Let It Be was the group's final release, but this album was their real goodbye: The completion of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" on August 20th marked the last time all four members were together in the studio they had made famous." - www.rollingstone.com

The original Beatles catalogue has been digitally re-mastered for the first time for worldwide CD release. Each CD is packaged with replicated original UK album art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album.

The albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilizing state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since its original release.

The collection comprises all 12 Beatles albums in stereo, with track listings and artwork as originally released in the UK. This will mark the first time that the first four Beatles albums will be available in stereo in their entirety on compact disc.

The stereo CD includes track listings and artwork as originally released in the UK. Within the CD’s new packaging, booklet includes detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. These stereo CDs will be housed in a three-panel eco digi-pack with 14 page booklet.

A newly produced mini-documentary on the making of the album, directed by Bob Smeaton, is included as a QuickTime file on the album. The documentary contains archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.

"For the new remasters, the engineer went back to the original 1960's analog master tapes. Remastering is about working with, sharpening, amplifying, clarifying, and enhancing what are already the settled (or established) facts of the original mix. A listening session in early June at Electric Lady Studios in Manhattan confirmed that this is exactly what has been done. In A/B comparisons with the 1987 CD versions, the Beatles' records sounded more alive, more spirited, with greater dynamic range, and a new spaciousness that was very apparent... These new releases are an audiophile's dream - on good gear, they do sound much improved." - Robert Baird, Stereophile Magazine, October 2009, Vol. 32, No.

"Harrison wrote 'Something' near the end of the White Album sessions (one placeholder lyric: 'Something in the way she moves/Attracts me like a cauliflower'). It was too late to squeeze it onto the disc, so he gave it to Joe Cocker. The Beatles cut a new version the next year with a string section, which would become a standard recorded by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Ray Charles." - Rolling Stone
