11 March 2016: it's... "A George Martin Production"
« on: March 10, 2016, 10:05:09 AM »
10 songs produced by the master.  AL suggests it will be all- Beatles but I hope we get some of his other stuff too.

We should at least get a Jeff Beck instrumental.  I'll try to get on fb tonight and request something (no fb at work!).

Was just about to say something to that effect. I'd much rather hear a set that had his work with the Beatles represented, but also say half a dozen tracks from some of the many other bands he produced. Beck being a prime candidate, but also Cheap Trick, Shirley Bassey, Cilla Black, Gerry & the Pacemakers, UFO, America, Badfinger, Dire Straits, and more than I can list.
Let's get right to it.

I don't do that Facepage thing, but if I did I'd request Pepperland as further exposition of the man's range of talents.

not to mention he produced all of Peter Sellers' comedy LPs and one-off 45s. True genius to be found there.

OTOH, Mr. Martin produced Elton's "Candle in the Wind" remake. Hopefully we'll be spared.

Pleased to see lots of non-Beatle requests in AL's thread.

Thanks!  I'll be quite surprised if it is played though, as it's pretty far outside of KFOG's
wheelhouse.

Excellent! But I always get confused...is the "Cause We've Ended as Lovers" or "Goodbye Porkpie Hat"?
