Son of Bea­tles’ pro­ducer dives into messy ‘White Al­bum’

Medicine Hat News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Hard­core fans of the Bea­tles like to pore over ev­ery de­tail of the band and end­lessly dis­sect the group’s songs. Then there’s Giles Mar­tin, who man­ages to time travel to meet the Fab Four.

Mar­tin is the son of leg­endary Bea­tles pro­ducer Ge­orge Mar­tin, and lately he’s been re­turn­ing to the trea­sure trove of orig­i­nal record­ing ses­sions to remix key al­bums by John, Paul, Ge­orge and Ringo.

This year Mar­tin has an ex­haus­tive look at “The Bea­tles,” bet­ter known as the “White Al­bum,” which con­tains clas­sics such as “Back in the U.S.S.R.,” “Black­bird” and “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.”

The ac­cepted wis­dom is that it was a rocky time for the band, which was dis­in­te­grat­ing. But Mar­tin dis­agrees. He says he hears the Fab Four work­ing to­gether with­out fric­tion.
