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 “She Loves You” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” 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 “Eight Days A Week” and “I Feel Fine.”

Then, in 1966, at age nineteen, Geoff Emerick became the Beatles’ 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.

A wonderful read and unique perspective of the music factory that was The Beatles. A great companion to the many commentaries and biographies that have been written over the years. Geoff Emerick loved his job and speaks without any ego regarding his valuable contribution to The Beatles astonishing recording catalogue.

A fascinating insight for fans of the Beatles, music and the recording process. Geoff goes into great detail in describing how some of the most iconic albums in rock n' roll history were put together and the ideas behind them. Geoff also reveals his relationships with each of the Beatles individually and gives us a look into their characters. The book can sometimes get caught up in the technical jargon involved with recording an album, but nonetheless is interesting and informative. A great read!
