Featuring such songs as “Something” and “Come Together”, “Abbey Road” was the second-last album released by the Beatles before their acrimonious split, although most of their final release, “Let it Be”was recorded before the “Abbey Road” sessions

The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album has returned to the top of the British album charts 50 years after its first release.

“It’s hard to believe that Abbey Road still holds up after all these years. But then again it’s a bloody cool album,” former Beatle Paul McCartney said in a press release.

Featuring such songs as “Something” and “Come Together”, “Abbey Road” was the second-last album released by the Beatles before their acrimonious split, although most of their final release, “Let it Be”was recorded before the “Abbey Road” sessions.

Its initial 17-week run at number one ended on Jan. 31, 1970, and it returns to the top of the charts after a gap of 49 years and 252 days, a feat certified as a Guinness World Record.

The 50th anniversary of “Abbey Road” was marked last month by the release of special deluxe edition.
