Sir George Martin is the most successful and most influential record
producer of all time. This statement of fact is supported by the
unparalleled worldwide success of the recordings he produced between
1950 and 1998 - and the universal regard for the artistic breakthroughs
he achieved in his career - especially in his recording of The Beatles
between 1962 and 1970.
In October 1998, Universal Music released his final recording as
a producer - "In My Life" - an album of Beatles songs
arranged and produced by Sir George and performed by an all-star
ensemble of some of the world's greatest entertainers.
The breadth of musical styles on the album - and the eclectic mixture
of stars who came together to honour him and perform his favorite
compositions by the Beatles - is a very apt finale to his career...
