Tesla Electrical Experimenter - February 1919

I am going to post a few of the early articles about one of the greatest inventory of all time except for maybe the wheel and fire guys. Tesla's inventions created the modern age.There are a few articles in his own words. Not exactly Hi-Fi but I find these articles fascinating.

Geoff Emerick Beatles Sound Engineer RIP


Geoff was as close to being the 5th Beatle as anyone. Geoff was there from the first to the last session. I've studied Beatles lore since I was a kid and the Beatles would not have been the Beatles without the EMI staff especially Geoff. They only recorded outside of EMI a few times which I suspect other studios just weren't up to snuff. I highly suggest the Beatles recording sessions book.
 Wrap your brain around this and think about it Sgt.Peppers was recording on a freaking 4 track. Track bouncing bastards lol....


 

Thank you Geoff RIP.
