We listened to classic Beatles' albums with the legend who engineered them
Not a bad way to start your musical career.
Geoff Emerick was just 19-years-old when he engineered his first Beatles album, 1966's Revolver.
Recorded entirely on a four-track with legendary producer George Martin at the helm, the intricate multi-track construction of songs like 'Tomorrow Never Knows' is the musical equivalent of building the pyramids.
Emerick went on to engineer Sgt. Pepper's, Abbey Road and much of The White Album before he walked out on sessions because of tensions in the band.
JOE was honoured to sit down with him for a unique opportunity to listen through these classic albums.
He reveals fascinating details about:
- who was the first Beatle to welcome him into the band,
- who was the true perfectionist in The Beatles,
- and how he and Paul McCartney worked through the night to create one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.
