On August 8, 1969, The Beatles shot the cover for their last recorded album, Abbey Road. This album cover has become one of the most iconic of all time, coming in at #4 on this Rolling Stones reader-poll! The record itself was definitely one of my favorites to pull out of my Dad’s collection when I was young. Some of my most-played tracks: ”Come Together”, “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”, “Octopus’s Garden”, “Here Comes the Sun”, and “Golden Slumbers”. For the cover photo, the photographer, Iain Macmillan shot the band from a stepladder positioned in the middle of the road as a policeman stopped the traffic behind him. To read about the day and see the original sketch created by Paul McCartney visit The Beatles Bible, my go-to resource for all things Beatles!
