A Little Night Music

Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Abbey Road.  I still have my original vinyl.

You may notice that this is a re-mix of the medley.  Per the liner notes:

The Abbey Road side 2 medley from The Beatles, with a reshuffled track order meant to replicate the original intent of the album; Her Majesty now sits in between Mean Mr. Mustard and Polythene Pam, with the ending and intro notes respectively blending into Her Majesty as required. I also included the extended take of You Never Give Me Your Money as found in The Beatles Rock Band, which includes a bit more guitar solo. However, to get all the masters to line up correctly, I had to use the Beatles RB stems, so the mix sounds a tad dryer than you may be used to, so my apologies if it’s a bother. This is mostly just a fun experiment to see how the album may have turned out.
