EMI ANNIVERSARY

Abbey Road Studios posted an announcement today commemorating an important anniversary. On this day in 1962, The Beatles recorded their first tracks at what was then still known as EMI Studios. From FB: "The Beatles stepped into Abbey Road Studios for the first time and auditioned in Studio Two for Sir George Martin and Parlophone Records. The band played ‘Besame Mucho’, ‘Love Me Do’, ‘PS I Love You’ and ‘Ask Me Why’. The session was the only EMI recording to feature Pete Best on drums, as when the band returned in September, he had been replaced by Ringo Starr." First steps in what became such a prolific and groundbreaking recording collaboration! I believe only two takes from these audition sessions exist and were included the Anthology project. The music, art, and history around this whole group of people have really been the main passions of my life and it's been wonderful to finally visit some of the sites and to connect with folks in recent years. If Spy Vibers are interested in exploring Beatles history, I highly recommend starting in Liverpool with Jackie Spencer's tours and the Casbah Club and the Magical Beatles Museum- both hosted by Roag Best, brother of Beatle Pete Best. History is alive there! Abbey Road Studios is also a special place to see, especially because it appears to be so humble from the outside. It's amazing to think about all the records that came from those rooms. I think there are a couple of rare studio tours coming up in August, so be sure to check those out if you are in the area. Happy EMI day! Crank up the tunes, my friends! Some related posts: Paul at 76Beatles Pac-ManInterview: Fab 4 ManiaThe Beatles: Mission to India, Sgt.
