In Honor of George H. Martin

“Sir George Henry Martin CBE was an English record producer, arranger, composer, conductor, audio engineer and musician. He has been referred to as the “Fifth Beatle,” including by Paul McCartney, in reference to his extensive involvement on each of the Beatles’ original albums. Martin had 30 number-one hit singles in the United Kingdom and 23 number-one hits in the United States.”

These are two of the songs in which the genius of George Martin transformed rock music and The Beatles.

      Richard,
      I guess Paul McCartney saw Sir George’s contributions as crucial to the growth of The Beatles.

    I think this is the first Beatles song I don’t like. To messy for me I think.

      Christer,
      It is not one of my favorites either. I posted it because of George Martin’s involvement.

      Thanks, J
      I am listening to Ray Cathode, and it is tremendous. The music has so much variety.

      Thank you for the link!

      I’ll listen to the rest this afternoon.
