Geoff Emerick became an assistant engineer at the legendary Abbey
Road Studios in 1962 at age fifteen, and was present as a new band
called the Beatles recorded their first songs. He later worked with
the Beatles as they recorded their singles aShe Loves Youa and aI
Want to Hold Your Hand, a the songs that would propel them to
international superstardom. In 1964 he would witness the
transformation of this young and playful group from Liverpool into
professional, polished musicians as they put to tape classic songs
such as aEight Days A Weeka and aI Feel Fine.a
Then, in 1966, at age nineteen, Geoff Emerick became the
Beatlesa chief engineer, the man responsible for their distinctive
sound as they recorded the classic album "Revolver," in which they
pioneered innovative recording techniques that changed the course
of rock history. Emerick would also engineer the monumental "Sgt.
Pepper" and "Abbey Road" albums, considered by many the greatest
rock recordings of all time. In "Here, There and Everywhere" he
reveals the creative process of the band in the studio, and
describes how he achieved the sounds on their most famous songs.
Emerick also brings to light the personal dynamics of the band,
from the relentless (and increasingly mean-spirited) competition
between Lennon and McCartney to the infighting and frustration that
eventually brought a bitter end to the greatest rock band the world
has ever known.
