George Martin To Launch Playback In Australia
28 Aug 2002
Sir George Martin will be visiting Australia to launch his Genesis limited edition set PLAYBACK in October. The worldwide launch of Playback will be held at the Westin Hotel, Sydney, on 11th October.
Playback will be George Martin's full autobiography. Illustrated throughout with photographs and documents including many from his own personal archive, Playback feature a by 50,000-word text by George Martin covering his entire life from birth to the present day, concentrating on his fifty years at the heart of the British music industry. The book, which will be bound in quarter leather, will be accompanied by a special 12-track CD which showcases his work as a producer, composer, arranger, conductor and performer, featuring nine unreleased recordings and three other personal favourites. All will be housed in a hinged solander box (pictured right). Playback is being issued in a limited edition of 2,000 copies, each copy personally signed by George Martin and individually numbered.
We are also delighted to be able to announce that the book will feature Forewords by both Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
Customers can register their interest in a copy by emailing Genesis as usual. A preview page will be up on this site shortly.
