Abbey Road: The Best Studio in the WorldUser Review - Barbara Hoffert - Book Verdict
Not just the Beatles: folks from Pink Floyd to Florence + The Machine have recorded at the Abbey Road studios, and the scores for five Star Wars films and the Lord of the Rings trilogy were first ... Read full review
Abbey Road didn't start with The Beatles - I am quite suprised that there seems to be no mention of Ruby Murray. She is still a world record holder with having 5 hit records in the Top Twenty all at the same time in 1955. I think she did E.M.I. proud with her record sales and all before she was 21yrs old. She had 7 chart entries in one year, and had a record in the charts every week for a whole year.
When she sadly passed away in 1996 E.M.I. were conspicuous by their absence. I still have and invitation from E.M.I.for Ruby to attend a 'Gathering' at Abbey Road, it's in the shape of a C.D. Sadly Ruby was too seriously ill at that time and was unable to attend the 'Gathering'. It is now a treasured possession of mine.
I hope that when I have the opportunity to read the book I will be able to retract my words.
