The Beatles' fans still have an unquenchable thirst for everything Beatles: music, books, film--everything. Geoff Emerick weighs in with his years as the engineer on most of the Beatles' hit albums and singles. Narrator Martin Jarvis tells Emerick's first-person account of working with "the boys" in the famous Abbey Road studios. A British accent makes everything sound better, and, in this case, the voice is perfect. It's great to hear the little pitch of excitement when Jarvis talks about the relationship of the four musicians and Emerick's unusual studio tricks to help make that special sound. Emerick is in his 60s now, but Jarvis's youthful presentation captures the heady days of his youth spent with the greatest rock band of all time.
