Any number of albums made here have gone gold or platinum, picking up Grammys and other awards along the way.Famed producers and sound engineers at the studios have developed groundbreaking new techniques, including automatic double tracking at the instigation of John Lennon. And it?s also been a landmark in moviemaking: here were recorded John Williams?s original scores for five Star Wars films, as well the scores for the Lord of the Rings trilogy?two of them awarded Oscars.This gorgeous book includes a full history and time line, facts and figures, a discography with famous album covers from the 1930s to now, and a wealth of never-before-seen photos and treasures from the studio?s own archive. It?s an incredible document of cultural history, for anyone who values music and how it?s made.
