Abbey Road was the penultimate album by The Beatles. It’s predecessor, Let It Be, was all but finished before the recording of Abbey Road began, however, Abbey Road was released first. The album is notable for George Harrison’s songwriting coming to the fore, seven songs on side two that run into one another make up a suite of perfectly formed ditties and er….Maxwell’s Silver Hammer. A Classic.

10/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 19th October 2014
Recorded last but released as their penultimate album “Abbey Road” see the Beatles starting to sound more like solo artists. George Harrison steps up to the plate here with “Something” and “Here Comes The Sun”. There are the obligatory stupid songs, of course, “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” and “Octopus’s Garden”.
The true magnificence of this album comes on side two. It is pretty faultless from the off, the tracks ranging from minute-long ditties to fully realised songs make for arguably the best side of an album ever.
