Following the disasterous Let It Be sessions, Paul had approached producer George Martin asking if they could make an album "the way we used to." Martin agreed, but only if the band would be "the way (they) used to be." Paul replied, "We promise," and sessions began for the Beatles best-selling record, Abbey Road, briefly recorded under the working title "Everest". Songs about being in debt, being broke, and being ripped off filled the record's grooves. Also, George came into his own as a writer with "Here Comes the Sun" and "Something." The sessions proved to be the last for the Beatles. The cassette version of Abbey Road has "Come Together" and "Here Comes the Sun" switched on the track list, and the UK version does not list "Her Majesty" on the back cover, whereas some US copies feature one or the other, or both. Rumors circulated for some time that Paul was not wearing pants for the cover photo and they were airbrushed on, but photo outtakes from the same session have proven this false. The album won the 1969 Grammy for Best Engineered (Non-Classical) Recording. Nominated for Album Of The Year and Best Contemporary Vocal Performance, Group.

My favourite album of all times!!
The production, the singing the arrangements! EVERYTHING is pure gold!!

Oh darling is a true testament that Paul could sing rock just as well as John..

And Harrison wrote to of his best songs ever..

I would love to have this one remastered! It would shake my loudspeakers!! [:D]

no doubt. I hated it when they digitally edited the cigarrette out of Pauls hand. Urgh.
