George Martin On How Lennon-McCartney Differed From Other Songwriting Duos
Producer George Martin was there for The Beatles recordings from 1962 and beyond the group’s breakup in 1970. When Sir George gives an opinion or observation about The Beatles, I take it to heart. I found this audio clip from last year put the writing partnership between Lennon-McCartney in a whole different perspective for me. They really did differ from other songwriting partners in a way I’d never considered.
Until their producer said this.
