This is not a book you will read overnight, however, you will want to read more each time you pick it up. I was in my early teens when the Beatles came to America. They have been a large part of my life ever since, inspiring me to learn to sing and play the guitar, to this day, and set up a small studio in my basement. During the sixties the time spent between the release from one Beatle album to the next was spent listening, (over and over) to the tracks of the latest album and wondering, 'how did they get that guitar sound', or 'what is that instrument I'm hearing'? This book demystifies what happened during those sessions.
Between the creative genius of the four boys, and the practical knowledge and expertise of George Martin, this book shows you just how they all grew and the steps they took to get to where their body of recorded work will never be duplicated or surpassed.
Anyone who has a technical interest in the history of studio recording, or an interest of the chronological timeline of how and when the Beatles recorded what songs, should purchase this book. I began looking at it at a friends house and after just a few pages, I knew I needed to own a copy of it.
I would highly recommend this book for any hard core Beatles fan.
This book gives you a detailed look of how the Beatles worked throughout each album.
I personally like to know the dates and time of the recording sessions and all of the details that went into their sessions.
Oh....there is on e item I would like to share with you guys. I wish that they added what make of instrument that was featured in each session. There are b&W photo's which you can see what was used.
