For One Thing, I Don't Like Your Tie

I was recently thinking about George Martin, who just died. I attended a lecture about how the Beatles recorded their music, and any such lecture has to deal with Martin, the real fifth Beatle.

He chose them to begin with and gave them their head when most producers wouldn't have.  Their relationship changed over the years--first they were working for him and then he was working for them.  But there's no one who influenced their sound more.

So I listened to some of his stuff and wondered how much longer he'd be with us.

I'll do a tribute of the music he recorded and produced in a couple days.  (I don't need much excuse to put up videos of the Beatles.)
