Sir George Martin (Beatles related)

Sir George Martin - The Record Producers, a BBC Radio 6 Broadcast 5.9.2009 - 2009 - Naughty Dog

If the re-release of the Beatle's Beatles Remastered Stereo and Mono 2009, rekindled interest in The Beatles, then this album is also interesting. It is a fascinating insight into the way that genius record producer Sir George Martin, invented new recording techniques to create the sounds on many of the Beatle's greatest songs, especially those from Sgt. Pepper, Abbey Road, and White albums. In this BBC programme, Richard Allinson and Steve Levine examine George Martin's work as a producer, and arranger, and investigate his technical, and innovative sound experiments. The album includes excerpts from the restored master tapes. Some of the Beatles greatest songs are heard in a completely new way. There is an amazing acoustic version of George Harrison's "Something", using different lyrics. With the latest 21st Century recording techniques, some of the Beatles original tracks have been "split" into individual parts, and heard here for the first time. George Martin talks about many aspects of the studio and recording processes, the albums Sgt Pepper and Abbey Road, and there is some amazing dialogue where George Martin explains how John Lennon was a perfectionist, and was never happy with the band's finished songs. John once told George Martin that if he had the chance, he'd re-record all the Beatles' songs again ! This is a hugely important album, and a must listen ! Thanks to JTT who captured and transferred the show and to eddiethecat for sharing the album on the WWW.

Cheers, Doc. Every so often, I have to change servers for midi, when it exceeds bandwidth. So there may be silence at times. I keep thinking about changing it, but it's addictive! I always check your blog. It's great, and working great. Thanks for the new player. TTU soon
