Geoff Emerick

Geoff Geoff Emerick was in the right place at the right time- starting a job at Abbey Road Studios just days before The Beatles recorded "Love Me Do." By the time they began recording Revolver, Emerick had been promoted to engineer. It was up to him to make John, Paul, George and Ringo's creative dreams a reality in the studio, a challenge Emerick recounted in his 2006 book, Here, There and Everywhere. He went on to work on Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, part of The White Album and Abbey Road.

Beyond The Beatles, Emerick worked with Art Garfunkel, Elvis Costello, Jeff Beck, Michael Jackson, The Zombies, Cheap Trick, Stevie Wonder and Wings. Emerick died October 2, 2018 at 72 years old.

We revisit Jim and Greg's conversation with Emerick from 2006.

Miguel Kaleidoscope Dream

Kaleidoscope Dream, the new album by Miguel debuted at #3on the Billboard chart. But he's still an unfamiliar name to most people. The R&B singer and songwriter had moderate success with his first record and has penned songs for Mary J. Blige and Usher. And with this sophomore effort, he really goes all out. You can hear influences from all over the map - from Marvin Gaye to The Zombies. But it's his unique spin and musical chops that make Jim and Greg give the album an enthusiastic double Buy It.

“She's Not There”The Zombies

Jim's Desert Island Jukebox selection is inspired by his television guilty pleasure: True Blood. While he was disappointed by the season premiere, he loved hearing Neko Case and Nick Cave duet on a cover of "She's Not There." But nothing compares to The Zombies‘ 1964 original. It combines beautiful chords and harmony vocals with a dark, sinister undertone. Plus you can’t beat those keys or Colin Blunstone's vocals.

Star athletes and star musicians have a lot more in common than you might think. No, we don't mean the abundance of tattoos. Both fields are high-risk, high-reward and both pro-players and rockers have a short shelf life. Now, the NFL is helping its athletes transition out of football and into the music industry. The player engagement division has paired with New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music for the“Business of Music Boot Camp.”As Greg explains, the list of athletes who have launched successful recording careers is pretty short. But, Jim suggests these men may fare better behind-the-scenes. Perhaps they can share the NFL's secrets to making a profit. After all, no industry is better at protecting its copyright.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons has unveiled a program to let some inmates carry mp3 players. It's first being tested in West Virginia, but should go nationwide this year. The devices will be sold in prison commissaries, but prisoners won't have access to everything. Strictly forbidden will be explicit tracks, and Jim and Greg imagine, anything about tunneling out of jail. So they make a couple of suggestions. Greg would like The Zombies' "Care of Cell 44" to get him through the lonely times. And Jim goes with the protest anthem, "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," by the Animals, written by Mann & Weil.
