'Abbey Road' back to top of British album charts

Oct 05, 2019

London (UK) Oct 05: The Beatles' "Abbey Road" has returned to the top of the British album charts 50 years after its initial release.
A deluxe reissue of the record, released to mark its 50th anniversary, took the number one position on Britain's Official Albums Chart Top 100 on Friday.
The original release came out on September 26, 1969, and remained at number one for 17 weeks in Britain and 11 weeks in the United States.
It was the last album the Beatles recorded together. The group disbanded the following year.
The return of "Abbey Road" to the top of the charts after 49 years and 252 days beats the previous record for an interval between periods at the top -- 49 years and 125 days. That was also set by the Beatles.
Former Beatle Paul McCartney wrote on Twitter, "It's hard to believe that Abbey Road still holds up after all these years. But then again it's a bloody cool album."
