Remembering George Martin on his birthday 🎂
📷 Richard Faulks, 1997
"I thought, O.K., we’re all taking photographs of an existing event. But we don’t have to make a photograph; we can paint. And that prompted me to experiment."
George Martin by David Magnus, 1965
"While they were having their tea break, I put down a baroque piano solo which John didn't hear until he came back. What I wanted was too intricate for me to do live, so I did it at half speed, then sped it up."
John Lennon & George Martin listen to playback, in this photo by Frank Hermann from 1967. Sophisticated recording equipment!
Some day I should put together a #playback thread; I love the staring-into-space looks of the musicians, producers & engineers.
This photo by Terry O'Neill was taken on July 1, 1963 during the recording sessions for She Loves You. The Beatles are signing documents for publisher Dick James, but George Martin has musical matters in hand.
Joni Mitchell & George Martin by Denis O'Regan
Osaka, 1994
Not sure what project brought these two together.
George Martin's score for Guy Hamilton's Live and Let Die is lovely.

Happy birthday Stephen Stills 🎂
📷 Graham Nash, 1969
Nash took this photo in a motel during the recording of Déjà Vu. He mentioned they still needed an opener for the album, & the next day Stills said 'Hey Willy, listen to this!', & played him "Carry On".
