Thanks again to the lovely folks from the EMI Archive Trust for sharing another great piece. They recently met up with the legend Brian Kehew (Co-Author of the Recording the Beatles book) for their Memories of EMI Campaign.
In this short video he shares how they found one of the key pieces of technology used on many Beatles recordings and the software model that followed that discovery.
If you are interested in taking part in this campaign you can contact the EMI Archive Trust: firstname.lastname@example.org.
