6 von 7 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von rg1960 am 22. August 2007
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Im Jahr 1987 erhielt Lewisohn die Erlaubnis, sich in den Abbey Road Studios die originalen Beatles-Mehrspuraufnahmen sämtlicher Sessions von 1962 bis 1970 anzuhören. Er führte damit die Arbeit des an Krebs verstorbenen John Barrett auf demselben, anspruchsvollen Niveau weiter. Diesen einzigartigen Einblick in die Studioarbeit der Beatles sowie zahlreiche Interviews mit Zeitzeugen ließ er in dieses Buch einfließen. Hier werden chronologisch sämtliche Beatles-Aufnahmen aufgelistet und fachkundig (!) kommentiert.

Der englische Verlag "hamlyn" hat diese Reprint Edition als Taschenbuch im Langspielplattenformat neu aufgelegt. Es war lange nicht mehr im Handel erhältlich und es gibt dieses Werk bisher lediglich in englischer Sprache.

Fazit: Neben seinen Büchern "The Beatles Live" und "The Complete Beatles Chronicle" ist diese Publikation mit das Beste zu dem Thema, wohl auch da es vor Lewisohn niemandem erlaubt war, etwas über das Beatles-Archiv zu publizieren.

lewisohn hat viel zeit...kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass er noch anderes macht in seinem leben.
habe mittlerweile so ziemlich alles von ihm, was mich selbst sicherlich auch bereits in eine gewisse beatles-nerd ecke stellt, aber was solls, die beste, größte, kreativste band aller zeiten verdient noch viel mehr aufmerksamkeit!

Wer etwas kurzweiliger durch die Schöpfungen der Fab4 'surfen' möchte, dem sei "Hard days write" mehr empfohlen. Für jene die fast für jedes Detail zu haben sind empfehlenswert.

Beatles Sessions! 17. Dezember 2006
Von General Breadbasket - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions" is a fine book, covering the recording, mixing and release of the Beatles songs, from the demos in 1962, to Phil Spector's reworking of "Let it Be" in 1970. There's a fair few photos too, which are great.

This book was originally a project for John Barrett, an Abbey Road audio engineer who fell ill in the early 1980s and needed something to take his mind off things, and was commissioned to go through the Beatles tapes and catalogue them all. He died, sadly, and Mark Lewisohn (the writer of the liner notes for the Beatles "Past Masters" CDs) was asked to come in and write up Barrett's research. Together, they've put together a pretty thorough book. It lists how each song was recorded, credits for session men (where possible), and reflective comments from producer George Martin, engineers Geoff Emerick, Norman Smith, Glyn Johns and Alan Parsons, among others. There's also occaisonal bits of Beatle banter from the sessions (which is always great to hear/read), and a Paul McCartney/Mark Lewisohn interview as an introduction.

After reading it I think I know the Beatles a bit better now. In particular, I definitely understand why they broke up. Their schedule was pretty hectic, recording and re-recording everything, looking at the same four walls of the Abbey Road studios. It was exhausting just reading their 1967 sessions (where they did "Sargeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band", then straight after "Magical Mystery Tour", the first, high-pressure live broadcast "All You Need is Love" and the tracks especially for the "Yellow Submarine" film). It's amazing they handled it all so well for so long. It was also interesting to read about how Abbey Road studios was in the 1960s, a rather formal sort of place, and to read about all the innovations they initiated (like automatic double tracking, etc). It was great fun going through year by year too.

A bit technical for casual Beatles fans, but for fans (like me) who love every detail of Beatles songs, and still want to know more, it really is worth checking out.

Beatles Recording Facts, Secrets, Gossip, Timeline, Trivia! 4. Dezember 2001
Von First Things First - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am simply dumbfounded that this book has gone out of print. There is simply no other source for the information contained in this book, and it is consistently fascinating, entertaining and enlightening. In view of the never-ending interest in The Beatles CDs, and the fascination with how the band was able to make such huge strides forward in the evolution and revolution of pop and rock music, not to mention our popular culture in general, it is amazing that this book even exists in the first place as a miraculous wellspring of information. It contains virtually everything you would ever want to know about how all of the Beatles songs were recorded, from many different perspectives including producer George Martin, engineer Geoff Emerick, the Beatles crew members, and anyone and everyone who was present. You will see the exact sequence of events as song ideas turned to demos, demos to masters, overdubs, special effects, recording accidents, mixes and mastering. You will see how albums took shape, and songs from one period ended up on albums from another period. Amazing facts abound...how about the fact that in the entire recording history of The Beatles, drummer Ringo Starr never made a musical mistake which caused the tape machines to stop rolling. Think about it...a perfect record of studio drumming! With all the complexity and variety of the music, not to mention 16-20 hour recording sessions for months on end, with guitars hitting wrong notes, voices cracking, piano note bloopers etc. A truly amazing feat! As the owner of both a Hardcover copy and a Softcover copy of this book, I suddenly realize that I am far richer than I thought! Find this book, read it, study it, and treasure it!

Addictive, but in dire need of revision 20. September 2006
Von ABQChris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I can't give it all five stars, due to the errors that could have easily been corrected between the first edition and this (fourth?) one -- new things have come to light since the book's initial appearance, thanks to the Anthology episodes and the great book, Recording the Beatles.

Much of the information in this book is erroneous, although nothing more was known as of 1988. So it's not a bad job; it's just out of date. The sheer work and research involved deserves a revision, and not just a reprint to cash in on the recurrent waves of Beatles interest.

One little problem is that Mark doesn't seem to know much about the writing or recording of music; he often uses confusing terminology that doesn't quite fit (he seems misguided about what a middle eight is, for instance, and has no idea what the difference is between an "overdub" and an "edit piece").

When he tries to interject his own opinion -- which isn't indicated in a book of nonfiction data like this -- he's often comically out of line. One instance that stands out is when he claims that "Martha My Dear" is not about Paul's sheepdog. It obviously IS, not only judging from Paul's comments, but also considering that lyrics like "Hold your head up, you silly girl" were certainly not written about a human being.

Having said all of that, this is highly addictive reading, the prose having been painstakingly researched and optimally assembled. It's an obvious recommendation to any more-than-casual Beatles fan who likes to read, wishes the music would always be focused on instead of irrelevant soap-opera stories about the musicians' personal lives, and has an interest in the only big instrument that the Beatles actually were virtuosos at: the recording studio.

Just apply some salt to the precise information about overdubs, amounts of session takes, specific dates and whatnot.

EDIT: Brian Kehew posted a comment on this review, and helpfully informed me that the author was never allowed a revision by the publishers. So that explains it! All criticism about the book's information being out of date should now be directed toward the publishers.

The making of the Beatles records 11. Juni 2004
Von W. Langan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
For at least 4 years, this book has been out of print (it was originally published in 1988). The Beatles Anthology CD releases probably had something to do with this. Nevertheless, if you're interested in the complete recording sessions, this is the book to read. It begins with their 1st EMI session in June 1962 (back when Pete Best was still the Beatles' drummer, before Ringo Starr replaced him) and ends in 1970 with the remixing of the Let It Be sessions with Phil Spector. The only thing that's dated is the often repeated phrase "This remains unreleased to this day" in reference to songs "Leave My Kitten Alone," "Not Guilty" (the Beatles' version), "One After 909" (the 1963 version), "12 Bar Original," "That Means a Lot," "What's the New Mary Jane" and "How Do You Do It." This book features anecdotes about what went on during the studio sessions (some the Anthology listeners and viewers already know about and more), photographs, interviews and insights by producer George Martin, Norman Smith, engineer Geoff Emerick, session drummer Andy White (who took Ringo's place on the single version of "Love Me Do") and an insightful interview with Paul McCartney. Yes, Mark Lewishon has done his homework here with research and hours upon hours of listening to the Beatles' session tapes. In a perfect world, many of these still unreleased sessions would be available for listening, legally (of course, there would be some tracks which would leave the listener thinking "Ok, now I know why they didn't release this"). I'd like to see an updated version of this book (many of Mark's comments concerning the songs and other additional tracks mentioned above will have to be replaced with "Until the release of The Beatles Anthology 1 [or 2 or 3], this take/track remained unreleased"). He'd have to include a section for the Beatles Anthology CD's and DVD collection ("You can hear part of this take on Part 1 [or Part 3 or Part 8] of The Beatles Anthology").

Amazing... 22. Juni 2007
Von S. C. Dixon Photography - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
First, I find it amazing that anyone kept this information in such detail in the first place.
Secondly, it is amazing that it was ever complied and put into a book.
Thirdly it was amazing that anyone would a.) Publish the book, b.) Buy the book in the first place and c.) Actually read it, which I have. Perhaps most amazing of all is how imminently readable and enjoyable it really is.
I imagine prerequisite being that it is important for the reader to have a love of the art of recording as well as a serviceable knowledge of the Beatles' collected body of work. Mine is the first edition and, yes, there are minor flaws, but honestly they are few in number and nothing of the "glaring" type which actually demeans the book.
I had initially picked up the book in a shop and glanced through the photographs, then I absently read an entry and was hooked. I think this is, all-in-all, a very exceptional journal and a valid history of one of the greatest recording acts of all time. Over the years I have met numerous musicians who, although they might not be dyed in the wool Beatles fans, still recognize their incredible contribution to recording technique and innovation. Kudos of course to Sir George Martin as well.
I cannot conceive of a more definitive account than this.
