The opening chord to the Beatles ‘Hard Days Night’ has been argued about for decades. Exactly how did they create that sound?! The discovery of the original master tapes has shed some light on this (see the Randy Bachman video below) and this excerpt from the new Marky Ramone book ‘Punk Rock Blitzkrieg: My Life As a Ramone’ tells of how hard Phil Spector worked to capture the majesty of that chord while recording the Ramones in 1979. Definitely worth a read!
