One of our favorite small music presses is Curvebender Publishing. A few years ago, they published Recording the Beatles
, which chronicled every Beatles session at Abbey Road, what equipment was used, and how The Beatles bent the studio's technology (and engineers) to make the sounds of the future.
Now, Curvebender has released a new book of Beatle photos by Henry Grossman, Place I Remember.
Grossman followed the The Beatles from their very first appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 through the sessions for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
. "Even though The Beatles had lots of photographs taken of them," said Paul McCartney in the introduction, "occasionally one of the photographers would be out of the ordinary; Henry Grossman was one such photographer."
Most of the photos have never been published and they all reveal a side of The Beatles that most photographers never got to see. Get your Casinos
ready and check it out.
Here's a promotional clip for Henry's last collection, Kaleidoscope Eyes
, which chronicled the recording of "Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds."
