Hello Lovely people!
My good friend Jerry Hammack was kind enough to take a couple of hours on a Friday and sit down to talk with us and answer questions about the Beatles. Jerry is an expert on the recording methods and the gear that Sir George Martin and the Beatles used to make their many amazing records!
Jerry is the author of the book the Beatles Recording Reference manual. This is first book of a four-book series, that tracks the evolution of the band from their earliest recordings and initial hits, through “Please Please Me”, “With The Beatles”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, and “Beatles For Sale”.
Please enjoy the replay of the live Q&A right here, and if you have any questions for Jerry, I lovingly threw him under the bus, and asked that he answer any questions possible in the comments section below the youtube video!
Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,
Great interview with so much insight information! Thank you, Jerry! Thank you, Warren! What I’d like to know ist something about the ADT invented by Ken Townsend. When did they begin to work with it? Which songs are best known for using it? Are John Lennon’s lead vocals on “Day in a Life” with ADT? Does ADT mean automatic double tracking or artificial double tracking 🙂 Why had the Beatles’ engineers to invent the RS 127 Rack, RS 127 Box and the RS 135 EQ? Is it true that John Lennon loved them so much? Is it true that they used many of them in one signal chain? Many thanks in advance from Germany!
