Spotted something neat on the Twitter feed of musician Michael Penn today: this oh-so-1962 single, recorded by a post-Goons pre-Beatles George Martin and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop‘s Maddalena Fagandini. Can someone please tell me what a “time interval” is? Apparently “Time Waltz” was a reworked time interval.
In addition to his humble roots, George Martin’s buttoned-up demeanor and BBC diction hid just how widely his mind did range. The Fabs were beyond lucky to pair up with him. It is the intellectual range of the Beatles which makes them so endurably fascinating to me. (And maybe to you, as well.)
