George flew to India to produce the ‘Wonderwall’ soundtrack. He did it at Bombay EMI: “It was fantastic, really,” he said. “The studio’s on top of the offices but there’s no soundproofing. So if you listen closely to some of the Indian tracks on the LP you can hear taxis going by. Every time the offices knocked off at 5.30pm we had to stop recording because you could just hear everybody stomping down the steps. They only had a big old EMI mono machine. It was too incredible. I mixed everything as we did it. It was nice enough because you get spoiled working on eight- and sixteen-tracks.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
