Geoff Emerick became an assistant engineer at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in 1962 at age fifteen, and was present as a new band called the Beatles recorded their first songs. He later worked with the Beatles as they recorded their singles “She Loves You” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” the songs that would propel them to international superstardom. In 1964 he would witness the transformation of this young and playful group from Liverpool into professional, polished musicians as they put to tape classic songs such as “Eight Days A Week” and “I Feel Fine.”

Then, in 1966, at age nineteen, Geoff Emerick became the Beatles’ chief engineer, the man responsible for their distinctive sound as they recorded the classic album Revolver, in which they pioneered innovative recording techniques that changed the course of rock history. Emerick would also engineer the monumental Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road albums, considered by many the greatest rock recordings of all time. In Here, There and Everywhere he reveals the creative process of the band in the studio, and describes how he achieved the sounds on their most famous songs. Emerick also brings to light the personal dynamics of the band, from the relentless (and increasingly mean-spirited) competition between Lennon and McCartney to the infighting and frustration that eventually brought a bitter end to the greatest rock band the world has ever known.

From the Back Cover:

Advance Praise for Here, There and Everywhere

"From the very beginning, Geoff was an eye-witness to the phenomena of the Beatles and the way they changed music forever. If you really want to know what happened, read this book. It provides a fabulous insight into a very special time."
-Graham Nash

"This is an endlessly fascinating story of extraordinary resonance... a delicious mixture of musical insight, revealing anecdotes and historical and technical detail. An accurate, elegantly written, and profoundly evocative account of an important era."
-Peter Asher, producer of James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt and former Apple Records A&R Director

"Geoff's book is a dream come true for people like me who have studied the Beatles' records all these years. The cat was there!"
-Paul Shaffer, musical director, Late Show with David Letterman
