Beatles Auction 2021 - Birthday Card sent to Geoff Emerick from Paul McCartney

Far Side Birthday Card with mailing envelope dated 6 December 1999 addressed to Geoff Emerick from Paul McCartney -  message inside reads “Geoffrey Have A Happy One love Paul & The Kids”  £700-£800


Geoff Emerick began working at EMI from the age of 16. His second day of work was the first time Ringo drummed in the studio with The Beatles. 

He worked as an assistant engineer on some of the early Beatles singes before his ongoing training limited his involvement with the band.

In 1966 he became their sound engineer from the Revolver album onwards. He stopped working with them during the White Album session due to the tension in the studio but returned for the recording of Abbey Road. 

In 1969 he oversaw the building of Apple Studios at 3 Savile Row.

He won GRAMMYs for sound engineering on Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Abbey Road and the Paul McCartney and Wings album Band On The Run.
