October 1, 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of the release of Abbey Road - the last album the Beatles recorded. After the turmoil of The White Album and Let It Be, the Beatles put their differences aside to record one of their most popular albums that still sounds fresh and vital today. Each member shone brightly from Lennon's funky "Come Together" to Harrison's sublime "Something' and "Here Comes the Sun" to McCartney's galloping Side 2 Medley – a virtual rock 'n' roll symphony. Using audio and visual content, we'll review the stories behind the album's best-known songs and celebrate the Beatles final gift to music lovers all over the world.
