More Info
5oth anniversary edition of The Beatles classic 1969 album on 3 vinyl formats and 3 CD formats.

All the new Abbey Road releases feature the new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original eight-track session tapes. The album’s 17 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo, high res stereo, 5.1 surround, and Dolby Atmos, accompanied by 23 session recordings and demos, most of which are previously unreleased.

The Limited 4CD Super Deluxe box set features 40 tracks – including “The Long One” Trial Edit & Mix for the album’s epic Side 2 medley – on 3 CDs (stereo) and one Blu-ray disc. The 4 discs are housed in a slip- sleeved 12” by 12” 100-page hardbound book with McCartney’ s foreword; Martin ’s introduction; insightful, in-depth chapters written by Beatles historian, author, and radio producer Kevin Howlett covering the months preceding The Beatles’ Abbey Road sessions, track-by-track details and session notes, the cover art and photo shoot, and the album’s reception upon its release; plus an essay by music journalist and author David Hepworth looking at the album’s influence through 50 years. The gorgeous book is illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photographs, including many taken by Linda McCartney; never before published images of handwritten lyrics, sketches, and a George Martin score; Beatles correspondence, recording sheets, and tape boxes; and reproduced original print ads.

Abbey Road ’s limited edition Deluxe 3LP box set features all 40 tracks from the Super Deluxe collection on 180-gram vinyl LPs. The album’s new stereo mix LP is packaged in a faithfully replicated sleeve , with the two Sessions LPs paired in their own jacket, presented with a four-page insert in a lift-top box. The 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. The 2 CDs are presented in a digipak with a 40-page booklet abridged from the Super Deluxe book.
