46 years ago today...

"On the morning of May 9, 1962, Beatles manager Brian Epstein first met Parlophone Records producer George Martin at his office in EMI Studios at Abbey Road in London. It was during this meeting that George Martin agreed to give The Beatles an audition recording session." It is impossible to imagine The Beatles without the guidance and safety net of Brian Epstein (good ol' Eppy), and the musical instruction and influence of their hands-on producer, Sir George Martin. Brian sadly died of an accidental overdose in 1967, and it seems the band began their downfall after that. But luckily, Sir George lives on, still contributing to their forever-young legend. Together with his son, Giles Martin, they complied the Beatles' latest album, LOVE (made to accompany the Cirque Du Soleil act). The Martins won two Grammys for it.

I love Paul in this one. Totally taking over the scene...
This was in their first recording session at Abbey Road in 1962. There and then, they recorded their first album -Please Please Me- in only 585 minutes (9 hrs 45mins). It went straight to number one and remained there for 30 WEEKS.





SUCH a cool idea of John's for their last album...they only used it in the 90s for their Blue and Red albums though...

I have the original red and blue album records (as well as loads of other Beatles records... but beside the point.) and I love to just look at the comparison. It's amazing how scruffy they got. xD
