30) "The Mid-Morning Recording" The Beatles-'Help! - The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack'
Without a doubt George Martin was certainly one of the most influential producers and arrangers of all of music. Before The Beatles he cut his chops recording classical music for Decca, so when was offered a four piece band, he knew right away how they should be arranged. When The Beatles started to record, he was the professional in the room. He produced pretty much all of The Beatles catalog with the exception of two albums, and he was certainly an inspiration to me, even as a young child. I was always drawn to the stereo panning, and the atmosphere of his recordings for The Beatles. That work has certainly inspired me into my adult life as a sound editor and mixer. I played "Live and Let Die" to start off the show, and I decided that since we already played "Abbey Road", (the last great hoorah with Martin and The Beatles), the soundtrack to the film "Help!" would be another album that showcased not only his production work with the band he was known for working with, but also with the orchestral score. No one lives forever, but while he was here, he made his mark in so many genre's of music, and of course The Beatles wouldn't have been so great without him. A hero to the music producers everywhere.
