About the Edition: “At some point, the album was going to be titled Everest
after the brand of cigarettes I used to smoke,” recalls
Geoff Emerick. The idea included a cover photo in the
Himalayas but by the time the group was to take the
photo they decided to call it Abbey Road and take the
photo outside the studio on 8 August 1969. The cover
designer was Apple Records creative director Kosh.
The cover photograph was taken by photographer Iain
Macmillan. Macmillan was given only ten minutes around
11:30 that morning to take the photo on a zebra crossing
on Abbey Road while a policeman stopped the traffic.
That cover photograph has since become one of the most
famous and most imitated album covers in recording
history. In the photograph, The Beatles walk across the
street single file from left to right, with Lennon leading,
followed by Starr, McCartney, and Harrison. McCartney is
bare-footed and out of step with the other three.
