Great AUDIO comes with superb ORIGINAL Garrod & Lofthouse misaligned laminated Cover. The audio on this pressing would be hard to better! Although Let it Be was the last Beatles album to be released Abbey Road was the last to be recorded. George Harrison blossomed into a major songwriter, contributing the buoyant Here Comes the Sun and the supremely melodic Something, which later became the first solo hit for the group that wasn't a Lennon-McCartney composition. The genesis of the album was a Paul McCartney suggestion to producer George Martin that the Beatles get together and make an album "just like the old days...just like we used to". The two sides are quite different in character, apparently to please both John Lennon and Paul McCartney individually - side 1 (to please Lennon) is a collection of single tracks, while side 2 (to please McCartney) contains one long medley of short compositions that segue together. The track I Want You (She's So Heavy) is the second-longest released Beatles song (7 mins), behind Revolution (9 mins). It also features one of the earliest uses of a Moog synthesiser. The chords in Because are based on Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. The song Octopus's Garden, while written by Ringo Starr, was almost totally re-written in the studio by George Harrison, but credit still went to Ringo. The climax of the album is a sixteen-minute medley, consisting of several short songs, both finished and unfinished. Her Majesty was originally part of the medley, but Paul didn't like it so had the medley re-edited to remove it. However, an engineer placed it at the end of the medley after 20 seconds of silence. The Beatles liked this random effect and left it on the album. On some versions (like this one) the song isn't listed and so it might be considered as the first true hidden track on an album - it lasts for 23 seconds. ALBUM PLAYED FOR GRADING: Yes – brilliant sound quality throughout!Abbey Road is a complex and varied collection of music, and is also an extremely sensitive piece of vinyl, hard to find in clear audio condition. Worn and un worn copies can have a lot of surface sound even on musically complex and busy tracks like 'I Want You / She's So Heavy'. This 1st pressing has super clear undistorted audio, with brilliant clear sound and absolutely minimal background static. There is certainly no dominant interference, and NO distortion. It really sounds great and plays with great sound separation and clarity! Superb sound, every track has been tested and I could find no obvious sound blemishes. Wonderful TOP audio, there is NO distortion, NO sticks or jumps what so ever, and virtual silence between the tracks. Great music with great clarity, and so hard to find with this type of sound. I'll give a detailed account below: Beginning with the classic 'Come Together' the audio is just incredible. There is virtually no occasional static and certainly nothing obtrusive, which is pretty incredible for a 1st track on this highly collectable record. Its so clear that you can clearly hear the metronome keeping Ringo's beat, a sound that is nearly always lost with the slightest surface sound. There are so many variables in the audio performance, and so many quiet delicate sections. Some static during the run in grooves, and some very slight background only. Amazing. 'Something' also has a quiet intro, and again the sound is just sensational. Still not a single loud pop or click, and very little static to be heard. 'Maxwells Silver Hammer' again has superb clear audio. There is virtually no occasional static, just the faintest most distant background sound to be detected. The sound is incredible. 'Oh Darling', this track again plays with super clear audio, and little static or surface sound. No light pops between tracks, 'Octopus's Garden' plays with very little occasional, light background static, and still that brilliant clear tonal and audio quality, as with the final classic, 'I Want You'. Again there is some very light static and certainly no intrusive interference of any sort, just super bright loud bassy sound. Fantastic. Side 2. 'Here Comes The Sun' continues the musical journey, and plays superbly. There is very little surface sound, and not a single pop or click, juts some very light static at the start of the track. The quiet 'Because' plays superbly, with flawless audio. There is not a single loud pop or click during the music, anywhere on the vinyl. The sound quality is extremely clear, and it plays with incredible separation, sharpness and tonal clarity. The same goes for 'You Never Give Me your Money', the building intro, and the track plays superbly with very little light surface static. 'Sun King' and 'Mean Mister Mustard' play with great clarity, following a very quiet clear middle section, returning to the final passages, this audio performance is concluded and this final quiet outro plays superbly. There is no obvious static during 'Sun King', and no pops or clicks at all, but there are a few light static tics, although they are hard to hear. 'Polythene Pam' plays with great clear sound, again with no pops clicks and a barely any surface sound. 'She Came in Throughout the Bathroom Window' and 'Golden Slumbers' play with great clarity, clear audio and again barely any detectable surface static at all. 'Carry That Weight' and 'The End' conclude this great album, with great clear audio, and very slight surface static at all. This is a superb 1st pressing and a great listen. Loud, sharp clear audio, there is barely any occasional static (as detailed) and No pops or clicks. A couple of static tics, this is a superb audio performance. The music jumps out, with definition and clarity, the vocals which come through with tremendous power. Its the same with the bass guitar and drums, whilst the guitars come through crisp and clear. With the clear and extra loud First cut engineering giving the audio a vibrant sound which cannot be beaten. A great all round example of this classic vinyl. This is an audio pleasure for such a rare vinyl, and I would happily give this great record a NEAR MINT sound grading. THE RECORDA superb piece of glossy vinyl, and a really thick pressing. Deep clear grooves that can only be found on the original early pressings, this vinyl is immaculate. In bright daylight and under a spot light it looks unmarked. Graded at NEAR MINT to MINT- condition. THE LABELS Famous Apple labels are in great condition. All the ink is completely intact, no marks or writing, and NO spindle traces. Great all round first press examples, with NO MAJESTY LISTED! Graded at MINT CONDITION. VINYL TESTED FOR ANY SIGNS OF WARPING:Yes, NONE visible what so ever when tested be sight and on a moving turntable. THE COVERThis is a great example of this very rare cover. The spine is completely in tact as is the text. As these delicate covers were made out of relatively light card, they usually suffer from serious ring wear. This one has a very slight impression of the vinyl, no light ring wear and a few light creases. It's a lovely example, the front and back have a lovely sheen and a few light laminate creases only.There is no light scuffing to the corners, and a few very light, very small laminate creases only. The opening edges are very square and totally un frayed. A great example. All round, this is a stunning cover! Graded at NEAR MINT. THE INNEROriginal Black paper 1st press inner sleeve with one sided die cut centre. These incredibly delicate inner sleeves, the same as the ones used on the original White albums, were incredibly prone to destruction and were often discarded. This is a nice example, with no tears at all, no seam splits, juts a coupe of light creases.Graded at EXCELLENT condition. RARITY A 1st PRESS of ABBEY ROAD in decent condition is scarce. The vinyl is so often played so much, heavily marked, scratched, with noisy, poor and distorted sound. Any 1st PRESS examples with a record that plays really well is very rare. The cover is almost impossible to find without serious wear, even modestly worn examples are scarce. A 1st ever pressing with a great cover, an immaculate vinyl, the original inner sleeve and incredible clear audio makes this an extreme rarity.
