From Elvis Presley's 'Heartbreak Hotel' through 'Telstar', Pet Sounds, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Dark Side Of The Moon, 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' 'Anarchy In The UK', 'Heroes', 'Vienna', 'Two Tribes', Zooropa and Older, to more recent albums by BritPop stars Oasis, Kula Shaker, Cast and Radiohead, Good Vibrations - A History Of Record Production plots the development of popular music recording from the perspectives of the producers, engineers and session players.
A perfect blend of the creative, the technical and the human, it chronicles the pioneers and their milestone achievements - from Les Paul's invention of multitracking in 1949, through the experimentation of the Sixties, to the dramatic advances in the miniaturisation and affordability of equipment which has given streetwise kids the tools to create hits in their bedrooms.
Featuring contributions from Sir George Martin, Les Paul, Brian Wilson, Tom Dowd, Tony Visconti, Chris Thomas, Roy Thomas Baker, Midge Ure, Trevor Horn, Hugh Padgham, Pete Waterman and Brit Award-winning producers Brian Eno and John Leckie, this fully revised second edition brings the history of record production right up to date with a look at the making of Sir Elton John's record-breaking tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales ('Candle In The Wind 1997'), and how the influence of yesteryear has shaped the music of the late Nineties.
