How the Beatles Recorded Their Music

Have you ever wondered how the Beatles actually pieced together the masterpieces, instrument-by-instrument, track-by-track?

Well, here’s a fantastic insight thanks to blogger Andy Baio who has posted some all-too brief extracts from what looks to be a fascinating BBC 6 radio documentary called “The Record Producers: Extended Cut”.

The BBC was given free access to the original multi-track recordings of some of the Beatles most famous music, and the radio show begins to pick apart how the songs we know so well now were made in the studio way back when.

Andy has three short extracts from the show on his blog: “She’s Leaving Home”, “A Day In The Life”, and “Come Together”. Each of them is just amazing in the insights they give. Really worth a listen.

As Andy says, unfortunately the original BBC broadcasts are no longer available on their site.

Anyone who has access to where we can find the whole program please let us all know!
