Years After the Beatles, Abbey Road Is Still Innovating Music

50th anniversary of The Beatles Abbey Road

The venue, which is situated in close proximity to Abbey Road studios, is celebrating the golden anniversary of The Beatles' album, Abbey Road.

A limited edition "Abbey Road" Deluxe vinyl box set features all 40 tracks from the Super Deluxe collection on three 180-gram vinyl LPs, while a Deluxe 2CD set pairs the new stereo mix with versions taken from the session takes and demo recordings of its 17 songs, sequenced to match the album's running order.

On the morning of August 8, 1969, The Beatles were snapped by photographer Iain Macmillan as they strolled across the zebra-striped crosswalk in front of Abbey Road Studios, with one of the pics being used as the cover for what became "Abbey Road".

The time of day was chosen to avoid fans, who knew that the band typically turned up at the studios in the mid-afternoon.

Macmillan took six frames, of which the fifth one was used - the only one with the band stepping in unison. A sequencing session held on August 20, 1969 would mark the last time the Beatles were all together in the studio. "Let It Be", most of which was recorded prior to "Abbey Road", got its release in April 1970.

The cover also fuelled the "Paul Is Dead" conspiracy theory.

There was also speculation about the white Volkswagon Beetle in the background of the famous album cover, which had a registration plate of 28 IF - the age Paul would have been if he was still alive.

The zebra crossing has become a destination for fans of the Liverpool group over the past five decades, many making the pilgrimage from all over the world every year.

Around 190 songs of The Beatles were recorded at the Abbey Road Studio, just outside of which the photo was shot.

The gathering came as it was announced the album is getting a special re-release to mark its 50th anniversary.
