When I was much younger I saw an article on PULP magazine regarding the 10 most influential albums of ALL Time. Since then I have been on a quest to find all of these ten albums. I searched the record stores I was relentless, trying to find the albums in “store” condition. I searched Odessy, Fully Booked, Tower Records and just about all any record store I could possibly look for. Years went by and I only got two CDs. Needless to say my passion waned, I moved on to different things… but somewhere in the back of my mind my “quest” still remained.
Just this past few weeks I met an office mate who had the same “passion” as I had for Music. He literally bought original CDs 🙂 he not only listens to them he “collects” them. When I asked him if he knows this and that music he replied… “meron akong CD nuon… gusto mo hiramin?” My heart lept the “quest” was back on track! 🙂 So thank you to Sir Simon you put me back on track.
The “Quest” is resumed: Over the next few blog entries I will be writing about these ten albums and how they shaped the Music scene into what it is today.
The Beatles: Abbey Road
Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band The Beatles. Though work on Abbey Road began in April 1969, making it the final album recorded by the band, Let It Be was the last album released before the Beatles’ dissolution in 1970. Abbey Road was released on 26 September 1969 in the United Kingdom, and 1 October 1969 in the United States. It was produced and orchestrated by George Martin for Apple Records. Geoff Emerick was engineer, Alan Parsons was assistant engineer, and Tony Banks was tape operator.
Abbey Road is regarded as one of The Beatles’ most tightly constructed albums, although the band was barely operating as a functioning unit at the time. Rolling Stone magazine named it the 14th greatest album of all time.
Here’s some of the songs taken for the said album: In a word Timeless.
