Abbey Road received it’s initial release on CD on 19 October 1987. On the same day HMV released a limited edition (12500 copies) LP sized box set containing the CD, a badge, a booklet and 2 posters. It had a two week run in the charts, peaking at number 30.

It was released again on CD on 9 September 2009 as part of the stereo remasters where it had a six week run in the charts peaking at number 6. In the initial week of the remastered releases The Beatles held 17 of the top 100 positions. Abbey Road was the second highest of these.

I have 4 copies on CD, the one shown below, which is the original 1987 release, and 3 more in boxsets. This copy, catalogue number CDP 7 46446 2, UK CD-PCS 7088, is in excellent condition as can be seen by the pictures.

Estimated Value : £5
