    Alistair Lawrence is a music enthusiast and critic for BBC Music and Kerrang! magazine. Sir George Martin is a record producer, composer, arranger, and conductor. He has produced thirty number-one hit singles in the UK and twenty-three in the U.S. Martin is perhaps most famed for his association with the Beatles, whom he signed to their first recording contract in 1962, auditioning them in studio three at Abbey Road.
    Abbey Road studios have been on the cutting edge of recording for eighty years, hosting some of the biggest names in music over the decades: the Beatles, of course, who immortalized it with the title of their 1969 album; Pink Floyd; Kate Bush; Duran Duran; Radiohead; Florence and the Machine. Any number of albums made here have gone gold or platinum, picking up Grammys and other awards along the way.

    Famed producers and sound engineers at the studios have developed groundbreaking new techniques, including automatic double tracking at the instigation of John Lennon. And it's also been a landmark in moviemaking: here were recorded John Williams's original scores for five Star Wars films, as well the scores for the Lord of the Rings trilogy-two of them awarded Oscars.

    This gorgeous book includes a full history and time line, facts and figures, a discography with famous album covers from the 1930s to now, and a wealth of never-before-seen photos and treasures from the studio's own archive. It's an incredible document of cultural history, for anyone who values music and how it's made.
