Summary George Martin's working-class childhood and musical influences profoundly shaped his early career in the BBC's Classical Music department and as head of the EMI Group's Parlophone Records. Out of them flowed the genius behind his seven years producing the Beatles' incredible body of work. In this first book of two, Womack traces Martin's early years; his unlikely discovery of the Beatles, and his painstaking efforts to prepare their newfangled sound for the British music marketplace.
