^Yep – iconic and much parodied! 

Have you seen these posters? From photographs by Richard Avedon - 1967. I think they’re pretty amazing –

Some interesting background facts on Abbey Road ............

Nice to be able to go back to trust and friendship!!!!!!!!!

It's a mixed up sensation this being alive
Oh! it wears a man down into the ground
It's the strangest elation
I can't describe it
Oh it leaves a man weary
It makes a man frown.

yeah, I was aware of those little facts re: the album Gryphon, but nevertheless, its still a good read...

a super deluxe version of the album comes out in September which includes remastered album, 2 disks of demos..
also includes "the ballad of J&Y"/"old brown shoe" which were recorded during that time, also Macca's original version of Mary Hopkins' "goodbye"...

gonna be an interesting set IMO
