About The Book
This book is an esoteric study of The Beatles recordings and will transport the Beatle audiophile and musician back in time to the fall of 1962 through the summer of 1966, and help to visualize what transpired between the walls of Abbey Road EMI Studios. It details who performed which vocal parts, if they were single or double tracked, the number of harmonies, how many overdubs, how many instruments were used and who played them.
It's based upon years of intense research, combing through archive interviews, but most of all listening to the Beatles' historic recordings in minute detail. For the musician and Beatlephile reading this book, it will define what is occurring on each recording in a more cogent manner, which will help to visualize the recordings as if you were dropping into EMI studios through a time portal.
The book is geared toward the musician, especially guitarists, and those Beatlephiles who crave dissecting and analyzing the minutiae of Beatles recordings whether it's on vinyl, tape or the re-mastered CD collection.
Available as a 134 page, 8.5" illustrated paperback (ISBN: 978-0-692-55805-8) and also in Kindle format.
