RIP Sir George Martin....besides the obvious greatness of his work for The Beatles, his soundtrack for Live And Let Die has always been a firm favourite of mine.

Sad to hear of the death of Sir George Martin. His score for LALD was a highlight of the film and his work as the producer of The Beatles is the stuff of legend.

Re: Tributes Thread

RIP Sir George Martin - possibly the greatest producer of recorded music ever, to say nothing of his scoring talents. One need only listen to the instrument-only version of Eleanor Rigby...the string quartet gives one chills. Like the Beatles, there'll never be another of his calibre.

Re: Tributes Thread

Did he produce the title track Live and Let Die? Not sure, as of course he did the soundtrack album, but then again Macca was with Wings then and generally was shying away from heading back to Martin and the Beatle sound.

It's amazing how each Beatle album has a different sound, they really evolved. Martin was the one who suggested that Please Please Me should be sped up from the relatively laid back Roy Orbison number it was originally devised as, and also suggested She Loves You should open with the bold chorus, get straight to it. But he was also integral to getting them signed in the first place, as he took to them as people.

He also did some Goons stuff, and the song Goodness Gracious Me with Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren.

I don't think anyone had a bad word to say about him. Maybe John Lennon when he was in one of his scorched earth moods, but he later recanted.

I do like his LALD soundtrack. It's not John Barry, but Barry wouldn't have been right for that film maybe. Then again, he did Midnight Cowboy so you never know.

When Barry died, Martin was asked for his tribute and applauded him for writing FRWL. But of course, while he did the soundtrack, he didn't write the song, that was Lionel Bart. It would be like my saying how great Sir George was for writing the song Live and Let Die!

Re: Tributes Thread

Martin did in fact produce the LALD tune itself. The score of that film is brilliant, IMO.

Sad news indeed. Sir George Martin was a musical genius, and by all accounts a genuinely nice guy. The score for LALD is one the best in my opinion. RIP.  ajb007/martini
