forty years ago today, arguably one of the twenty greatest albums of all time (measured in originality, production values, or impact on the music world) was released -- the beatles' Abbey Road. it was the last album recorded by the monumentally talented band, though another album, Let It Be, was the last to be released. the beatles are legendary as one of the most influential groups of the twentieth century, even though they were active as a group for a relatively short time, 1960-1970. john lennon, paul mccartney, george harrison and ringo starr produced multi-layered music and movies, and were at the center of controversy in their professional and personal lives, both as a group and individually.
