Absolute Perfection: Buy this CD YESTERDAY!!! Grin...
on 3 November 2015
Absolutely fabulous, innovative, and a superb example of a virtuoso producer taking hold of some of the most popular music in the past century - FOR HIS OWN RIGHT. Listening to this, and considering the familiarity most have with Beatles material, I'm left with a few strong impressions. The mastery of Martin's guidance and production skills as both he and the Beatles evolved from the first album to the last. It was very much a symbiotic relationship as each album was released ( or so it would seem as this CD is listened to ), and what Martin has done with the Beatles material in his own right is OUTSTANDING. It's virtuoso stuff. As a secondary note, the label the Beatles were released on in the UK, Parlaphone, was originally intended by EMI to be a light entertainment label; comedy and the like. I think Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan had released stuff on the label, although I have no idea if they had any relation with George Martin. Peter Sellers and the Beatles ( John Lennon specifically ) used to hang out together, and if you search You Tube you'll find some fascinating experimental comedy movies with both Lennon and Sellers, which I believe was directed by Richard Lester. But I digress: this CD is excellent. I could not say enough good about it, and I must say that my Suirround Stereo on my movie tuner makes the music all the more spectacular. Perfect Stereo music enveloping you with excellence.
