This is a recorded presentation by Scott Freiman.
In Deconstructing Abbey Road, Beatleologist Scott Freiman has created one of his most in-depth “deconstructions.” Scott will take you on a track-by-track journey explaining the inspiration for the songs and their evolution in the studio. Scott’s presentation will transport you to Abbey Road Studio with tales of the Fab Four’s recording sessions there. You’ll experience Abbey Road like you never have before.
The Beatles’ Abbey Road is a masterpiece filled with classic Beatles songs, such as Come Together, Something, and Here Comes the Sun. George Martin told the Beatles to think “symphonically,” and they responded by creating the remarkable side two song suite. Abbey Road was the last time that the Beatles recorded together at EMI Studios — soon-to-be-christened Abbey Road Studios after the album’s release. Despite the bittersweet atmosphere that surrounded the recording sessions, The Beatles’ outstanding songs and performances together with George Martin’s orchestrations produced an album that continues to be regarded as one of the best albums ever created.
