Has  anyone in this forum  read the book "Recording The Beatles"

I am  looking for people to discuss more in detail about the contents of this book.

I would highly  recommend this book to any hard core Beatles fan

The book blows Mark Lewisohn book away  with  sheer detail.  It's  doesn't   go into detail on every song, only   key songs that evolved the development   of recording technology  at Abbey Road Studios. Most of the songs on the first two albums where  recorded  live  to either  mono or twin track with a minimal  of overdubbing As the recording  process grew  after the album Help,  the book goes into major detail.   What is awesome about this book, is the detail of all the equipment used at Abbey Road during the Beatles recording along with  other groups like the Zombies and Pink Floyd.  The first thing that  literal  blew me aways  was the 3D floor plan of Abbey Road studios and all of the important rooms

I will say this after reading this book, you will look at pictures of recording sessions  and your  then will be able to pick out Microphones, Recording consoles,  Compressors, Limiters, speakers,  patch-bays,  tape machines and other information and know exactly what it is and what was it's  direct purpose in the recording process.

I warn users, that this book is not for the beginner.  You must have  a background in audio, studio equipment, electronics  and the process of how music is recorded.   If you don't have this , you won't understand much of this book as it  is rather technical  in nature.
