  1. Great article Hans. That sums Abbey Road up pretty well. Not sure about the reference to Yoko in She Came In Through the Bathroom Window…I never heard that info before.

    It brought up album covers being iconic…and really part of pop culture. Of course, now that is gone.

    What was the last album cover to achieve that? Nevermind by Nirvana?

  2. Thanks for sharing this great article. As I’ve said on many prior occasions, The Beatles are my all-time favorite band, so reading about them generally excites me.

    That being said, I haven’t jumped on the 50th anniversary reissue. To start with, I already own Abbey Road on vinyl and CD. But more importantly, Giles Martin’s remix wasn’t as revelatory to me as Sgt. Pepper where the sound improvement was terrific, and The White Album, which had the charming Esher tapes.

    Not sure yet what I’m going to do here. I probably end up getting the reissue in some way. I just don’t feel like spending a ton of money for it!

    • I am the same as you as far as the re-issue of Abbey Road. I have the other recent reissues but just can’t pull the trigger on this one. There are better ways to spend money–if I can find it cheaper I will consider it.
