    Geoff Emerick joined Abbey Road Studios as an assistant engineer in 1962 and was promoted to full engineer in 1966, leaving to build the Beatles’ Apple Recording Studios in 1969. After the dissolution of the Beatles, he continued to engineer for Paul McCartney, as well as artists such as Elvis Costello, America, Jeff Beck, and Art Garfunkel. He has won four Grammy Awards, including a Technical Grammy Award in 2003.

    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 albumRevolver, in which they pioneered innovative recording techniques that changed the course of rock history. Emerick would also engineer the monumentalSgt. Pepper and Abbey Road albums, considered by many the greatest rock recordings of all time. InHere, 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.

    • The inside scoop

      Geoff Emerick engineered many of the Beatles' recordings at EMI studios in the 1960s and subsequently worked with Paul McCartney and many other renowned musicians both at Apple Records and elsewhere. He describes the recording process as it existed at the time and provides a fascinating glimpse into the world of the Beatles both during their joyful early years as well as later on when the band members' relationships with one another and with those around them gradually deteriorated. Mr. Emerick offers some interesting observations on the band's relationships with George Martin and Brian Epstein, among others, and the effect that Yoko Ono's arrival on the scene wrought. A well-written and enjoyable book by one who was actually there. Recommended.
