About this deal

I enjoyed it because I have lived through the many changes in how music is recorded and listened to. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. It’s just that I’m mixing in Beatles books with other books as you may have noticed from my last several posts.

Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (1967) and Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" (1973) engineered and produced in its environs, EMI Studios had already cemented itself as a historical landmark of sorts. Royal Mail stamps featuring the Beatles, January 8, 2007 at the Abbey Road Studios in London, United Kingdom. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. As Hepworth powerfully demonstrates, Abbey Road created the firmament for recording artistry, a genre in which the very idea of the studio is upended. Whilst it took me nearly a month to get through anyway - mainly because I don't get the time to devote to my reading - it was not because I did not want to read it, but because I was always busy with something else.

By the time the Beatles arrived at Abbey Road in 1962, producer George Martin (“Although he liked music well enough, what he really loved were records. Abbey Road claims that exalted status, of course, because it’s where the Beatles made their iconic, innovative albums with the assistance of producer George Martin, who developed his knack for sonic experimentation by recording comedy albums for the likes of Peter Sellers.

Hepworth’s writing is often elegant and more zingy than his cheery nature would lead you think, and the chapters and book as a whole keep a steady focus throughout. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. Later that same year, when Lennon said he liked the first part of one take of “Strawberry Fields Forever” and the second part of another take, it was left to Martin and engineers Geoff Emerick and Ken Townsend to figure out that though the takes were in different tempos and different keys, if one were slightly sped up and the other slightly sped down, they would in fact match.What is it that really happens behind the doors of the most celebrated recording studio in the world? David Hepworth skriver som vanlig med stort hjerte for musikken og menneskene, med gripende formuleringer og mange tiår med innsikt i populærmusikkens vesen. It may have begun life as an affluent suburban house, but it soon became a creative hub renowned around the world as a place where great music, ground-breaking sounds and unforgettable tunes were forged – nothing less than a witness to, and a key participant in, the history of popular music itself. While the point isn’t made in Abbey Road, “try it quicker” and “start with the chorus” are the exact instructions George Martin gave the Beatles during the recording of “Please Please Me” and “A Hard Day’s Night” respectively. Lastly, a large part of the charm of reading Abbey Road is that it's clearly written for an English audience.
