About the Author: David Hepworth has been writing, broadcasting and speaking about music and media since the seventies. really enjoyed this (and it also randomly helped me with one of my essays that i handed in this semester. On the management side of the industry, the book has much to say about George Martin, the producer, instrumentalist, and mentor to the Fab Four. Frank and unapologetic, Johnson vividly captures aspects of her former life as a stage seductress shimmying to blues tracks during 18-minute sets or sewing lingerie for plus-sized dancers.

It may have begun life as an affluent suburban house, but it soon became a creative hub renowned around the world as a place where great music, ground-breaking sounds, and unforgettable tunes were forged. An esteemed music critic and journalist, Hepworth provides us with a deep dive into the story behind the 91-year-old facility, a stirring narrative that mirrors pop music's twists and turns from its earliest days through the present. Biography: David Hepworth has been writing, broadcasting and speaking about music and media since the seventies. David Hepworth has been writing, broadcasting and speaking about music and media since the seventies.Pleased to see that the paperback of my book about Abbey Road Studios is out under the sign of the Penguin. Highly recommended for anybody with an interest in the musical recording process and indeed anybody who has had the need to 'cross that bloody road with three mates'. It's the chronological history of a recording studio that everybody born in the last century is familiar with.

On this day 60 years ago, legendary engineer/producer Ken Scott started his career at Abbey Road at the age of 16. Indeed, a comparable metamorphosis over the past seven to eight decades can be found in almost every other industry. The amazing piece of luck of The Beatles being picked up by George Martin after a modest audition is of course the stuff of legends, and this would of course cement not only the studio's place in history, but we see a seismic shift in the relationship between artists and producers, and introduce experimentation and depth into pop music the like of which had never been seen before. It is important that we continue to promote these adverts as our local businesses need as much support as possible during these challenging times.

So, they used to go to Hazel Yarwood [started at Abbey Road in 1947; no relevant experience other than familiarity with her dad’s classical record collection, and an ability to read music]. Though her work was far from the Broadway shows she dreamed about, it eventually became all about the nightly hustle to simply survive. It slightly loses steam in the latter chapters, but that's mainly because Abbey Road and the music business as a whole have similarly declined.

Opened by EMI in 1931, its initial showpiece was Studio One, designed to accommodate symphony orchestras. I was the only black girl making white girl money,” she boasts, telling a vibrant story about sex and struggle in a bygone era. Hepworth: "Thanks to four young millionaires who couldn't be bothered to do anything more than to step onto a zebra crossing.Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (1967) and Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" (1973) engineered and produced in its environs, EMI Studios had already cemented itself as a historical landmark of sorts. Hepworth's book is an excellent choice for music enthusiasts who want to delve into the fascinating history and magic that was produced within the walls of the world-renowned recording studio that is a part of British culture. It offers insights not only from a technical point of view but also from the perspective of its legendary recordings. Of course, I especially liked reading about The Beatles and how they recorded at the studios, and as I read, I found myself yearning to visit the studios. Those interested in the more technical details might be left disappointed, but that’s not to say Hepworth doesn’t tackle these (particularly in the earlier chapters).
