Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band the Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. The recording sessions for the album were the last in which all four Beatles participated. Although Let It Be was the final album that the Beatles completed before the band's dissolution in April 1970, most of the album had been recorded before the Abbey Road sessions began.

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

Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band The Beatles.

The Beatles - Abbey Road (Full Album) - 1969. You Never Give Me Your Money. Авторы текста и музыки. Paul McCartney, John Lennon.

The last Beatles album to be recorded (although Let It Be was the last to be released), Abbey Road was a fitting swan song for the group, echoing some of the faux-conceptual forms of Sgt. Pepper, but featuring stronger compositions and more rock-oriented ensemble work.

Named after the road on which they did most of their recording, Abbey Road was the Beatles' final album. Along with two of George Harrison’s finest songs, the highlight is the medley which takes up the majority of the second side. Cover Art Design Ian MacMillan. Recording Studio Trident Studios & Olympic Studios. Produced by The Beatles & George Martin.
