Sept 26 - Beatles Release Abbey Road

On this day, 41 years ago, The Bealtes released Abbey Road. Abbey Road would end up being the final album recorded by the super group, as The Beatles disbanded in 1970. The album was a huge success featuring classic tracks "Here Comes the Sun", "Come Together", and "Something". Abbey Road debuted at number 1 in the UK, and held the top spot on the charts for 17 of the first 18 weeks it was released. The reception was very similar across the pond in the United States, as the album spent 11 non consecutive weeks at number 1.

Abbey Road is widely considered by many to be one of the best albums of all time. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked it as the #14 album in music history, while other publications have it in their top 10.
