He’s occasionally called “the Fifth Beatle” in reference to his extensive involvement on every one of the Beatles’ first records. He’s regarded as among the best record producers ever, with 30 number one hit singles in the UK and 23 number one hits in America.
Following his graduation, he worked for the BBC’s classical music section, subsequently joined EMI in 1950. Martin made comedy and novelty records in the early 1950s, working with Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan, amongst others.
In a career spanning over six decades, Martin has worked in music, movie, television and live performance. He’s also held several senior executive jobs at media businesses and gives to an extensive array of charitable causes, including his work for the Prince’s Trust as well as the Caribbean island of Montserrat. In acknowledgement of his services to the music business and popular culture, he was made a Knight Bachelor in 1996.
Martin was right: Gerry & the Pacemakers’ variant, which Martin made, spent three weeks at No. 1 in April 1963 before being displaced by “From Me to You”. Starr was requested to play tambourine and maracas, and although he abode, he was undoubtedly “not pleased”. Due to an EMI library malfunction, the 4 September variation with Starr playing drums was issued on the single; later, the tape was ruined and the 11 September record with Andy White on drums was used for all following launches. Martin would later commend Starr’s drumming, calling him “likely … the finest rock drummer on the planet now”. “Love Me Do” peaked at number 17 in the British charts, thus on 26 November 1962 Martin recorded “Please Please Me”, which he simply did after Lennon and McCartney had practically begged him to record another of their first tunes. Martin’s vital contribution to the tune was to let them know to speed up what was initially a slow ballad. Following the recording Martin looked on the mixing desk and said, “Gentlemen, you’ve just made your first number one record”. Martin directed Epstein to locate a superb publisher, as Ardmore & Beechwood had done nothing to encourage “Love Me Do”, telling Epstein of three publishers who, in Martin’s view, could be reasonable and frank, which led them to Dick James.
