Recording The Beatles book launch at Abbey Road Studios


This is a four page photo series taken at the book launch of a very impressive and detailed Recording the Beatles book at the World famous Abbey Road Studios. We were delighted to be there and took a series of 30+ photos of some of the people that were there for the launch, many were involved with recording the Beatles.

The Recording the Beatles book launch took place in November 2006 and it was very well attended by a large number of engineers, technical and other related Abbey Road staff involved with recording the Beatles in some way. Many of the people attending had flown in from America and Australia so it really was a one off event, so many of the original staff re-united. We have put as many names to faces as possible.
