Finally recieved this book and a great one it is. At least For Maccafans. Have not seen anything that s even close to this when it comes to information about Maccas recording process. Not only technical information about what bass Paul used or dates of recording. There is also tons of stories/anecdotes that together gives a very interesting picture of the studioprocess. I also enjoy the personal wiews of different songs. Makes it all more alive. This is the one book that actually adds something worthwhile. Clearly a work of love that no Maccafan should miss.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad the book is receiving praise, as it was such a long work. Certainly I tried to give a unique insight into the process of recording of McCartney's songs. As he's a real master in doing pop music, his song benefit from well-crafted arrangements, multiple layering, etc, and to go in-depth with anecdotes and other details - that allows everyone to discover how the track were recorded - would have given something NEW to fans. On the other side, I did not want the book to get too much technical, so you could also using it for discovering other aspects, with a little bit of critical approach and quotes, archival researches and interviews, so to mix different levels of reading.

Thanks again.

Luca,
Yes, I edited my post above to show the correct email address I used. I actually sent it after I posted, because it was nighttime in Europe & I didn't think anyone would read it until the morning. Let me know if you receive it.

Thanks again, really. The last two years have been dedicated almost exclusively to the interviews. It required a lot of time to reach 70 different collaborators, each one living or working here and there in the world, with different timing, from Australia, to UK, to America, to Japan. But it was also a great fun, and a human experience with all of them...we shared a lot of things and everybody was happy to be part of this project. I think McCartney deserved to have a song-by-song book that tries to gather information that goes from recording dates to a bit of musical analysis, and adding the voice of who was there in the studio with him and could witness what happened.

Something to share from my book...
I had a great time interviewing some arrangers, well-known persons like Fiachra Trench (SPEED OF SOUND), Wil Malone (MORSE MOOSE AND THE GREY GOOSE), Mike Vickers (before LONDON TOWN he was involved in the ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE recording) or Alan Broadbent. These accounts are very interesting from any perspective because we can discover the relationship between Paul and the arrangers... In some case Paul gave freehand to them, in some other he presented an already formed arrangement.
Broadbent's account (about the session of MY VALENTINE) is very detailed and it's a very enjoyable piece to read, IMO.
