Published: Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 03:15 PM.

Many songs from "Abbey Road" — including "Something," "Here Comes the Sun" and "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" — have become rock standards, and the album was The Beatles' best-selling record.

Just as The Beatles used electronic musical sound effects on "Abbey Road," the NWFSYO continues the band's pioneering tradition of enhancing rock music with unexpected instruments.

"Long live the side long epic!" Clark said. "Long live the concept album!”
