In honor of its Golden Anniversary (50 years) The Beatles classic Abbey Road album was re-released and remastered at the end of September. It quickly made its way to the Number One spot on the U.K. Charts and broke a new record in the process.
Abbey Road spent a total of 17 weeks at #1 in the U.K. the first time out in the Fall of 1969. Since it rose to the no.1 position once again after 49 years and 252 days, it’s been officially recognized by the Guinness World Records for "the longest time for an album to return to the top spot in the UK."
Along with the fresh, clean sound from the original masters, some extra footage was uncovered in a bread bin while a house was being cleaned out in Wales. This treasure trove starring the Fab Four includes them singing There’s No Business Like Show Business, Lennon talking about the band’s friendship with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and John working on an alternative version of God, which would later appear on his Plastic Ono Band album in 1970.
