5.0 étoiles sur 5 L'agenda des Beatles 6 juin 2007
Par Hang Ta Kong TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
C'est probablement l'un des livre les plus précis sur les Beatles. Jour après jour, le livre décrit l'activité pofessionnelles des Beatles : concert, emission radio, cinéma, enregistrement à Abbey Road. Pour effectuer ce travail, l'auteur a eu accès aux archives du studio d'EMI et le résultat est exceptionnel. Il l'est tellement que depuis la sortie du livre, Paul mcCartney Ringo Starr et George Harrison ont demandé à Mark Lewisohn de rédiger les livrets des albums des Beatles (par exemple les 3 volumes d'Anthology) et lui ont commandé un biographie des Fab Four.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 beatles recording sessions 5 mars 2014
Par ar2
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
la bible, tout simplement, pour les amateurs des fab. Les beatles en studio au quotidien. Pas un essai critique, il y a d'autres livres pour ça (révolution in thé head, ian mcdonald par ex). on réécoute différemment les mêmes morceaux qu'on a l'impression d'avoir usés jusqu'à la corde suite à la lecture du livre. Attention, donne furieusement envie de se pencher sur toutes les versions alternatives qui toutefois ne dépassent pas les originaux ( le meilleur reste sur les albums, singles et EP parus entre 62 et 70, même si la prise 1 de tomorrow never knows présente sur anthologie vol 2 vaut quand même son pesant de cacahouètes... mais on se pose du coup des questions, la prise 20 de révolution parue récemment sur les bootlegs est-elle celle décrite par l'auteur ou un fake?) ! ce livre est finalement meilleur que chronicles du même auteur car focalisé sur les enregistrements avec anecdotes ingés du son, etc ... qui ne sont pas dans chronicles
pourquoi pas 5 étoiles, simplement une petite MAJ (date de parution, 1988!) de cette réédition qui reste indispensable aurait été nécessaire, M Lewisohn, des que vous aurez un peu de temps entre les 2 tomes de votre biographie définitive des fab?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beatles Sessions! 17 décembre 2006
Par General Breadbasket - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Addictive, but in dire need of revision 20 septembre 2006
Par ABQChris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beatles Recording Facts, Secrets, Gossip, Timeline, Trivia! 4 décembre 2001
Par First Things First - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THE DEFINITIVE REFERENCE BOOK 12 janvier 2000
Par John Moulis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Anybody with even a passing interest in The Beatles must have this book. Set out in a diary format it gives details of all recording sessions by the group. Sometimes it gets fairly technical with details about recording equipment, overdubs, etc but it is still essential information. One criticism, if you can call it that - most Beatles songs have gained legendary status and it can be quite disconcerting at times to have them clinically dissected in this fashion. But that is a small criticism. The fact that the book is apparently out of print is deplorable. It would be good if it were issued free whenever anybody buys their first Beatles CD, it is that important. It isn't a book, it's a rite of passage.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing... 22 juin 2007
Par S. C. Dixon Photography - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
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.
