Here, There and Everywhere

This book is told from the perspective of a recording engineer who worked with the Beatles during their early recordings in 1963 all the way to their final Album, Abby Road. As a Beatles fan, I really enjoyed hearing stories about their work in the recording studio. The author gives wonderful insights into how the Beatles worked and how their songs were created. The story is well-written and the narration is very engaging. The only thing I didn't like was the author's frequent criticism of the majority of the band members: Ringo, George and John.

Amazing Resource

Loved, loved, loved this book. Very informative. Good narrator. If only they could have included the music with the text!

Amazing! The honest accounts of recording with The Beatles were so real, I was sorry to get to the end of the last CD. This was not your typical tell-all book, rather a real Day in the Life (no pun intended).

An inside peek ...

I started listening as a "super fan" who knows a lot about the Beatles, and closed knowing a lot more - and feeling like I lived through the greatest recording sessions in the history of rock/pop music. Mr Emerick's life is a classic example of opportunity meeting skill with perfect timing. A very well written listen or read ... Bravo Geoff!
