TIL the Beatles played a demo copy of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” before its release at full volume from an open apartment window at 6AM. Instead of complaining, the residents opened their windows and listened, aware they were hearing unreleased Beatles music.(r/todayilearned)
Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick released a book called “Here There and Everywhere: My Life Recording The Music of The Beatles.” I read this while listening to the songs he was talking about recording, and the stories behind the sessions made the songs that much more powerful to my ears.
