  1. Very interesting article. Abbey Road is my favorite. Next to the White Album.

  2. Brings back some old memories. Hard to believe it was over 40 years ago!

  3. Totally fascinating! I remember years ago in college the "Paul is Dead" frenzy, and this photo was supposed to represent the "smoking gun" (John as diety, Ringo as clergy, faux Paul as the dead man and George as gravedigger). That said, I wonder how the wardrobes were selected. Also the VW license plate with "28IF" was supposed to suggest Paul would've been 28 IF he lived - which was of course true if he had died. I wish they'd been able to ID the "woman in blue" - always a curious part of this album cover to me. Interesting to see that it wasn't planned. ha. PS Sorry to see all the Beatles smoked.

  5. Iain Macmillan got it in just 10 mins. I've tried taking something like the Abbey Road picture with 4 friends, at different times of the day, sometimes with no traffic! Gosh, can't get close to it. Both, the picture and the album, are masterpieces.

  6. I'm positive the wardrobe was selected with the "what will i wear today" technique.

  7. To answer Roberteye's "wish" to identify "the woman in blue"... That lady is my Mum. She is Lila Rigby (1917-2011). Mother to me and my older brother John, who at that time was part of a "Boy Band" called The Cicadas, (later to become The Gibsons.) who were recording at EMI Studios that day. Mum had written to The Beatles (she was like that) telling them of the existence of The Cicadas. Shortly after her letter, "Elanor Rigby" ran up the charts. She always claimed her letter led to her name being opportunistically implanted into Paul's head at the right moment his genius was searching for the right rhythm. Even Paul wouldn't be aware from whence came the inspiration! My Mum was a part time waitress to H.M.The Queen at Ascot Races and remained so 'till she was in her eightie's. Any further questions about "the woman in blue" can be directed to : peterigby@jollyrogervideo.com.

  8. At this time I was employed by a printing company (E.J.Day) as a "Graphic Arts Camera Operator". This company printed and made record sleeves. I was the camera operator that made the colour separations (the first step in producing the printing plates) for "Abbey Road" and most of the now revered Musician Artists of the sixties. I am elated to claim to have handled the original artwork and had a hand in producing some of the most iconic sleeves of the period.

  9. Hey Peter! Thank you! That's such a great story - with the "Eleanor Rigby" bonus element.
