    Thanks for your feedback!

    Detailed, if painfully brief Fly-on-the-wall account of recording engineer Geoff Emerick's first-hand experiences as part of the birthing process in nearly every Beatle song in the canon. The fickle hand of fate gently places Emerick in the cat-bird seat at the tender age of twenty, working as a lackey at Abbey Road, and, incredibly, at the boards from the very beginning, in 1962, through to their dissolution in 1970. Which makes him an appreciable, if invaluable resource to the Beatles as he runs the boards under the tutelage of their producer and mentor George Martin through all their crucial phases of development. Of course, this left Emerick as a unique individual whose singularly rare and valuable perspective only grows more important as time progresses, making his book a welcome and essential addition to any serious Beatle book library. This could have been a thousand page tome and I'm sure I, like many Beatle enthusiasts, would have wanted more. Reading chapter after chapter, I got chills, not felt since sitting in the striped chair of my parent's living room, earphones shutting out the world as Rubber Soul seared through my skull for the umpteenth time. ~tweetjeffmiller
