This second volume on George Martin takes readers behind the scenes to reveal Martin’s efforts to consolidate the band’s fame in the face of tremendous sociocultural pressures while also achieving groundbreaking musical experimentation that led to the creation of Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road. His later work with Elton John, America, Jeff Beck, Cheap Trick and McCartney is also explored. It’s an exceptionally detailed look at the man who had incredible influence on the Beatles’ body of work.
