I recently purchased the DVD titled Produced By George Martin. I highly recommend it to anyone who would enjoy learning more about him. It features interviews from many people he worked with, including Paul, Ringo and his former oboe instructor Margaret Eliot (the mother of Jane Asher). It also features Sir George showing the world how to make the perfect Martini - he agrees with James Bond that shaken, not stirred is the only way to go!

The DVD shows 50 minutes of additional footage that was not included in the original BBC broadcast. I truly enjoyed it (the word "quaint" kept popping into my head) and I look forward to watching it many more times.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Who knew Sir George likes Martini? This might prove as a good read, I just hope my local book store sells them. Book stores here only tend to sell mainstream stuff.

I saw the trailer a few months ago, but haven't found it locally yet.  I'm sure I'll find it somewhere soon.  I'm really most interesting in learning about his very early career and his post-Beatles stuff.  Even the magic touch of George Martin (and Geoff Emerick!) couldn't help elevate the mediocre Cheap Trick album 'all Shook Up' to anything more than a passable curiosity.

E is for 'Ergent'.
