"The songs are so strong and cool, the writing is so great, there's just excellence on parade throughout the record.", Bob Weir. In 2009, readers of Rolling Stone named Abbey Road the greatest Beatles album and in 2012, the magazine ranked it number 14 on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. From Wikipedia: "Although Abbey Road was an immediate commercial success and reached number one in the UK and US, it received mixed reviews, with some critics describing its music as inauthentic and bemoaning the production's artificial effects. Many critics now view the album as the Beatles' best and rank it as one of the greatest albums of all time. In particular, George Harrison's contributions, "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun", are considered to be among the best songs he wrote for the group. The album's cover features the four band members walking across a zebra crossing outside Abbey Road Studios and has become one of the most famous and imitated images in the history of recorded music. As of 2009, Abbey Road remains the Beatles' best-selling album." Most items ship with free delivery confirmation, electronic tracking and jacket protectors (generally over $10.00) if applicable.
