Description: The Beatles last testament. Though there was more product to follow in the marketplace, this is the final album the Fabs recorded under somewhat civil circumstances, putting their increasing differences aside long enough for one last blast of greatness. And what a great one it is. Often ranking among the greatest albums ever recorded (which in fairness is an honor placed on about a half dozen of their platters), this LP is not only one of their most satisfying, but one of their most democratic efforts as well. Side One is essentially John’s, containing two of his heavy hitters, both in terms of popularity and heft (“Come Together”, “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”); Side Two leans on the more song-cycle medley-oriented production that Paul favored, with tunes adjoining and complimenting one another with the seamless beauty that defined the golden age of the album. Likewise, George weighs in with two of his finest efforts (“Something”, “Here Comes The Sun”), indicative that he was pent up with some superb material, though the rest would have to wait another year to be heard on the lovely All Things Must Pass. And don’t forget Ringo! His obligatory track per LP, “Octopus’s Garden” (a natural successor to “Yellow Submarine”), plus the only drum solo he ever recorded that anticipates the appropriately titled “The End”. A fitting, worthy end to the band that created the blueprint for what it means to be a rock and roll band.

Condition: I grade very conservatively according to Goldmine Record Grading 101 Guidelines (http://www.goldminemag.com/tag/goldmine-price-guides)

Vinyl: VG (7/10); shows signs of wear in surface scuffing and light scratches that do not interfere with the play of the album; surface noise is evident during play, though still an enjoyable listen; has a small defect in the pressing that does not cause LP to skip, but is audible. This is a 1978 pressing with a purple and silver Capitol label.

Cover: VG+ (8.5/10); cover is still in original shrinkwrap and is in super condition; a bit worn at the opening side of the jacket from handling and a bump on the lower left corner where the plastic has torn, but otherwise the jacket is still completely covered; no seam splits, tears, or significant wear; spine is clean and readable; rare to find one this old in the shrink!
