I'll give you a hint: It starts with an A, the cover photo shows a real place which is now incredibly famous, and I agree with the following statement.

When I bought the remastered box set, I was curious to see how they would be in order. When I saw Let It Be as the last, I said, "not in my house".

This whole thing is complicated by the fact that I Me Mine and Phil Spector's orchestral overdubs for I Me Mine, Across The Universe, and The Long And Winding Road were recorded after Abbey Road was finished.

 

That said, Abbey Road is the last for me.

I have the versions on my shelf in this order:

LIB Naked
Abbey Road
Let It Be

'Let It Be... Naked' is no different to 'Let It Be' in that its filled with edits, overdubs and manipulations. Apple tried to make folk believe it was as the Beatles originally intended yet there are January 4th 1970 overdubs on 'Let It Be' and January 8th 1970 overdubs (lead vocal) on 'For You Blue', ''Don't Let Me Down' is a cut and paste as are 'I've Got A Feeling' and 'I Me Mine' and the list could go on. 

It seriously bugs me that 'Let It Be' gets bad karma for being not what the Beatles intended yet 'Let It Be... Naked' goes unchecked yet its exactly the fucking same.

To show how much bollocks Apple spouted in their PR drive check the January 4th 1970 for 'Let It Be' in 'That Magic Feeling'.

The remix (C) for Let It Be … Naked neither lets it be nor stands naked, using quite a bit of digital trickery. The majority of the song is take 27A from January 31, 1969, incorporating two January 4, 1970, overdubs: the new backing vocals and Paul’s bass overdub. In addition, portions of take 27B (used in the film) are spliced in, specifically the third chorus and subsequent guitar solo (1:31–2:26) and the third verse and subsequent chorus (2:41–3:22). However, as Paul had sung “there will be no sorrow” on the third verse during take 27B, that line is replaced with take 27A’s “speaking words of wisdom.” Whew!

Oh. I have weak points when it comes to Apple. One is 'Let It Be... Naked' which is little more than a Paul McCartney historical hodge-podge ego-trip re-write pile of poo. They couldn't even include the correct fucking version of 'The Long And Winding Road' due to it being on 'Anthology 3' (dear god, the inhumanity of having that on it). 

How folk can opt for it over 'Let It Be' utterly confuses me.

And what on earth was the fucking point in that 'Fly On the Wall' disc? 20 minutes of excerpts of tracks each ranging from 20 seconds to just over a minute long. Whoop-de-fucking-do. A monkey in the middle of a bad trip from a 2-day binge on LSD, crack cocaine and whiskey would have done a better job if given the tapes.

And we are off-topic.stay-on-topic

I consider Abbey Road to be their last album. I think of it like this: since Abbey Road was the last recorded, it was their last hurrah as a group. Their last thoughts, emotions, and recordings were put onto Abbey Road. But, for Let It Be, since it was recorded mainly before Abbey Road, its basically their recordings from what I like to call "the middle of the end". Abbey Road, to me a least, was the last hurrah.

I consider Let It Be to be the last album as opposed to Abbey Road because a good amount of it wasn't recorded until early 1970 but in reality i think they should've released it as Get Back in April 1969 with your studio songs on the A-side and the songs from the rooftop on the B-side, then released Abbey Road and then released Let It Be as an EP with the January 1970 versions of Let It Be and I Me Mine on side A and You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) on side B.

Quick question for those who put Abbey Road after Let It Be: do you also put Yellow Submarine before the White Album?  

MrBig said
No. I always put it after.  

Joe said
OK, so what's the difference there? It was recorded before the White Album, just as most of LIB was recorded before Abbey Road.  

That exchange took place 7 years ago. That was Joe's attempt at being a King Mixer. a-hard-days-night-george-10 

While I still place LIB before AR, I keep TB and YS in order of release. My rationale for the order of the final two albums released is easily justified. At the time they started recording Abbey Road, it was intended to be the final album - the one that would make up for what the band must have felt was a sub par album in Get Back. Further, at this time nobody knew 100% that Let It Be (still referred to as Get Back) was going to be released after AR

That doesn't make me right, it's just how I feel about it. Also, like my friend @mithveaen said, 

mithveaen said
Actually I put Abbey Road after Let it Be because it's weird to listen The End to start with another album.. it's like "Well, is it the end or what??"

To put it simply, LIB came out last, but AR was the farewell.

For the most part although i'd argue that I Me Mine is their farewell. Also, it's funny how some people put Yellow Submarine after The Beatles but Let It Be before Abbey Road because i'd do the exact opposite if i counted Yellow Submarine as a proper Beatles album because at least a good chunk of Let It Be wasn't recorded until after Abbey Road was released.

I consider Abbey Road the last studio album but if I listen to the full discography then I will listen to them chronologically of when they were released so Let It Be is played after Abbey Road

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

For myself, I consider Abbey Road as their last. Because, even though Let It Be was recorded first, they pretty much just threw it up on a shelf wanting nothing more to do with it given what had gone on. They seemed happier and more willing during AR, so it's a happier album. To me anyway.

'Let It Be', 'I Me Mine', 'For You Blue', 'The Long And Winding Road' and 'Across The Universe' were all finished after January 1969, four of those after 'Abbey Road was released, so the idea it was recorded first is only correct to a certain degree. 

I always place 'Let It Be' after 'Abbey Road' as they had zero idea what to do with the recordings and spent months bickering and procrastinating until Spector was drafted in.

Actually, all 5 of those weren't finished until after Abbey Road was released.

3 January 1970:

I Me Mine is recorded, the final Beatles song recorded from the beginning for 24 years.

4 January 1970:

Let It Be has several overdubs done to it.

8 January 1970:

George overdubs new vocals onto For You Blue.

1 April 1970:

Phil Spector overdubs orchestra parts for Across The Universe, I Me Mine, and The Long And Winding Road.

Just under half the songs on Let It Be have something recorded in 1970 in them with I Me Mine being recorded in it's entirety in 1970.

In theory, i'd say about 15-25% of Let It Be is from 1970.
