I was browsing for Beatles books on Amazon's Kindle store and found this:

US: http://www.amazon.com/Life-on-.....B00DTW59AW
UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Life-o.....B00DTW59AW

It's the autobiography of Norman Sheffield, who founded Trident Studios, where (among various other things) The Beatles recorded. Bits of the White Album and Abbey Road were done there, as was Hey Jude, as it had 8-track facilities before EMI did. Other acts who recorded at Trident included Queen and David Bowie.

The book has an introduction by Paul McCartney, and is currently free (I don't know for how much longer). I thought I'd mention it. If you don't have a Kindle you can still install the app on your computer and download the book, and if you ever buy a Kindle in the future it'll be added to your library automatically (in short, get the book now while it's free - you can always read it later).

I got it and have read the first few pages of the 2nd chapter (I skipped the first as I'm not at all interested in Cliff Richard). When people remember things in such detail, though, I always wonder if they're making a bit of it up to fill the book out a bit.
