August 1969: Beatles Use Moog Synthesizer On Abbey Road Sessions

This month marks the 45th anniversary of the Abbey Road recording sessions that found the Beatles experimenting in the studio with a brand new instrument: the Moog synthesizer.  In the early weeks of August 1969, George Harrison brought his newly acquired Moog synthesizer into the studio to finish tracking on the Abbey Road sessions.  In this quote from the Beatles Anthology, Harrison describes the new instrument, "I first heard about the Moog synthesizer in America.  I had to have mine made specially, Mr Moog had only just invented it.  It was enormous, with hundreds of jackplugs and 2 keyboards."  

Released commercially in 1969, Abbey Road represents the last time all four Beatles would appear together in the studio and the only Beatles record to feature the synthesizer.  The Moog synthesizer's unique electronic sound made it into the final mix of 4 of Abbey Road's tracks:  Maxwell's Silver Hammer, I Want You (She's So Heavy), Here Comes The Sun and Because.  All four tracks can be heard in the links below.

We have overlooked God. We have overlooked the charitable hand which safeguarded us in peace and duplicated and advanced and fortified us, and we have vainly envisioned, by the trickery of our souls, that all these endowments were created by some unrivaled intelligence and uprightness of our own… It has appeared to me fit and legitimate that God ought to be seriously, respectfully and appreciatively recognized, as with one heart and one voice, by the entire American individuals Happy Thanksgiving Day 2014 Thanks!

I liked how the synthesizer complemented the melody in Here Comes the Sun. It just blended well, without being too overwhelming or being barely noticeable. I've always thought there was a something special in the background sound. But I never thought it was a Moog! - G. Lindt
