Personal Quote:

[on Phil Spector's controversial overdubs to the "Let It Be" record] "It was so uncharacteristic of the Beatles. It went against everything The Beatles wanted to do with the record. He tried to use the same techniques that he used on other people's records, and it didn't work. I could understand why Paul got so mad over it." See more »

Trivia:

While Martin worked mostly hand-and-glove with Paul McCartney musically, he often found John Lennon's musical ideas considerably challenging. Martin always met the challenge, though, contributing the orchestral windup to the mix of "A Day In The Life", and the use of old circus pipes recordings in "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite".
