But back to this book. What a marvel. For example, when I first opened the book I was greeted with a section on the changes made to the level meters on one of the mixing consoles. It detailed the changes in VU meter types and the technical details of each and the benefits of changing them out. I couldn't help the smile on my face. Obviously this book was a labor of love for the authors. All who obsess over audio, recording, and The Beatles owe them a great debt of gratitude. But I couldn't help but conclude while flipping through that it is also useful beyond just Beatle audiophiles. Anyone interested in the technical side of recording will find all of this detail very interested and possibly learn a few things along the way. Some of the recording techniques detailed are still used and still relevant in today's studios. The Beatles and the EMI engineers were certainly doing groundbreaking things in the studio and this book covers every bit of that in excruciating detail.
Beyond anything though, it almost seems worth it to buy this book just for the technical writing achievement it is. Something to sit and look at in wonder and amazement. I am overwhelmed by it at times. I imagine it will take me a year to fully take it all in.
The book Its about the equipment and thechnics of recording using by The Beatles along his whole career. All the details and big pictures showing this great ampli, the fairchilds compressor, etc.
