Title: Abbey Road:The Best Studio in the World
Author: Alistair Lawrence (Bloomsbury Publishing, HB, 2012)
Price: £275
Collectible status: One of 215 limited editions, sealed, boxed, signed by George Martin

So what's it all about? The Abbey Road recording studios have been at the heart of the music industry for 80 years and are an iconic symbol of British music. With their unique blend of vintage equipment and cutting-edge technology, they remain one of the most technically advanced recording, mixing and mastering facilities in the world.


It's written by freelance music journalist Alistair Lawrence with a foreword by Sir George Martin and published to coincide with the Abbey Road Studio’s 80th anniversary, the 50th anniversary of the first Beatles recording at the studios and the 40th anniversary of the recording of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon (all in 2012).
From the original bill of sale for the property and classic landmark recordings to today’s sessions, Abbey Road takes the reader through the studio’s illustrious history.
Featuring interviews and a wealth of rare and never-before-seen photos collected from their archives, the book provides a fascinating insight into the creative home of many of the world’s celebrated artists.
Signed by Sir George Martin, this is a boxed, individually numbered, limited edition of only 215 copies.
The book comes presented in a beautiful red and grey box bearing the Abbey Road Studios logo and we are lucky enough to have copies of this exclusive - a highly collectible - book. For a music fan, a very special gift - or an investment for the future.
