Eagle Rock Entertainment have set a September 11th release date for the DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Video release of the film Produced By George Martin.
The film, which originally broadcasted back in 2011 as part of the BBC’s “Arena” series, depicts in great detail the life of Britain’s most celebrated producer, Sir George Martin. In this very personal film, Sir George talks about his childhood, his war experience and his early days as a music student.
The new release will feature over 50 minutes of previously unaired footage including interviews with Rick Rubin, T-Bone Burnett, Ken Scott, Jimmy Webb and Howard Goodall. Here is the rest of the synopsis:
George Martin has had a career like no other. In the early '50s, he joined EMI/Parlophone and started working on orchestral music, music for children and single handedly pioneered a range of hugely successful comedy records with Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, Peter Ustinov and others. Then, in 1962, he signed The Beatles and everything changed. Together, George Martin and The Beatles revolutionized pop music and recording techniques, forging probably the greatest producer/artist collaboration there will ever be.
Produced By George Martin features numerous classic clips of the artists he has produced, and new interviews with many of them including Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Michael Palin, Jeff Beck, Rolf Harris, Cilla Black, Millicent Martin and Bernard Cribbins. A fascinating man and compelling film.
