So sad to hear of the passing of the great George Martin
Very Sad, and sincere condolences to his family.
But also … What a glorious innings ! Always always positive, and deeply thoughtful and creative, the man was a gentle giant of popular music.
My first knowledge of him is something that few will probably mention: he produced the Temperance Seven – those wonderful 20s style recordings of “You’re Driving me Crazy”, and the blissful “Pasadena” and many others. I adored that work and still do – a great influence. And related one-off projects like Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren. George obviously had a real magic, even then. When he later became the ‘in house’ producer for the Beatles, history was made – and a fabulous catalogue of work.
I didn’t know him well, but our few conversations were full of light. Massive respects and love.
Bless you George !
