WEFOUNDThe British Album: Containing the Poems of Della Crusca, Anna Matilda, Arley, Benedict, the Bard, andC. andC. andC (Classic Reprint)


For a band that released its first single in 1962, the Beatles have amazing longevity. The release of the Rock Band game today and a series of remastered albums has sparked renewed interest in the band that never went away, despite the death of two of its members.

Behind that interest lie decades of hits - all detailed here, thanks to the Official Charts Company . We've got the chart positions of each single plus every album released in the UK - plus the number of weeks they were on the chart and how many got to number one on both sides of the Atlantic.

First issued on 26th September, 1969 Abbey Road was the final Beatles album to be recorded but not their last to be released. Let It Be, though mainly recorded in January, 1969 was finally released in May, 1970 alongside the film of the same name.

Following the 'live' nature of the "Let It Be" recordings, for Abbey Road, The Beatles returned to the North London studios to create carefully crafted recordings with ambitious musical arrangements. Interestingly, 12 of the songs that appeared on the finished album were played during the filmed rehearsals and sessions for "Let It Be" back in January.

For the first time on a Beatles album, the front cover contained neither the group's name nor the album title just that iconic photograph taken on the zebra crossing near the entrance to the studios in London NW8 in August 1969.
