The Beatles and Beyond
Geoff Emerick is, of course, best known for his work with The Beatles. Yes, he's the man who engineered "Revolver" and "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band," as well as many of the tracks on "Magical Mystery Tour," "The White Album," and "Abbey Road."
But there's much more to his career than just those milestones. Join us for a fascinating conversation with Geoff Emerick as he discusses not only his audio adventures with the Fab Four and each of the Beatles individually (including the making of Paul McCartney's "Band On The Run" in Lagos, despite band desertion and monsoons, not to mention spiders and cockroaches as big as dinner plates) but provides a glimpse behind the scenes of the records he crafted with artists such as Elvis Costello, Jeff Beck, The Zombies, Robin Trower, Badfinger, America, Art Garfunkel and Nellie McKay. This very special presentation will be enhanced with rarely seen photos and video footage as well as rarely heard audio clips. Time will be allotted for questions from the audience.
