Sir George Martin is a record producer, composer, arranger, and conductor. He has produced thirty number-one hit singles in the UK and twenty-three in the U.S. Martin is perhaps most famed for his association with the Beatles, whom he signed to their first recording contract in 1962, auditioning them in studio three at Abbey Road.

If you are a Beatles fan or recording enthusiast you must get this book. Just back from England and standing in front of Abbey Road Studios, this book was a must for me. Just the photos in the book are incredible. Now this book is not about The Beatles, but obviously they are included as well as other 60's groups within it's own chapter. Also, this book was a perfect table book. I can't believe this is the first review. Get it now......................

Format: Hardcover
Sure, the big-4 had an album named "Abbey Road". But this studio is a LOT more than just one album, one foursome! Great photos and text breeze along this large coffee table book! Starting with basic recording techniques, then winding thru Edward Elgar recording his classical/ classic big "Hits" of the 30's, amazing shots of great orchestras recording with the info as well, Big Bands during WW2, many Brits not too well known here in the USA; then of course the real Invasion with songstresses and singers/ bands like C. Richard, Pete and Gordon, the Shadows, the Dakotas, Pacemakers, and then swinging in to the last 35 years or so, with sound tracks, and tons more! (Obviously, this review cannot do this book justice at all!) Do your self a favor and order this book, perfect of any music afficionado; great to browse thru with family and friends!

A great book chronicling the history of Abbey Road. It's informative and has great photos that I've never seen before. If you have "Recording The Beatles" by Kevin Ryan and Brian Kehew then you need to buy this as well. It's a great companion piece for "Recording The Beatles" and similar in it's look and in-depth coverage. But not just fro Beatle fans, it starts at the beginning in 1933 and has a great cross section of music; jazz, classical, comedy and rock. Highly recommended!
