My Favorite Cheap Trick Track Produced by George Martin - by Colin Gawel

The great, great, great George Martin has passed away. I think reasonable people can agree that without George, there would have been no Beatles. And a world with no Beatles is like a world with no melody. I won't bore you with my take on all the great work Sir George did. Others are better qualified to tell that tale and certainly social media is bustling with great stuff to check out. So do it.

George did produce one record for my favorite band, Cheap Trick. And though he caught the band just past its peak, there are many interesting moments worth giving a listen. My favorite is the song "World's Greatest Lover." It has such a  unique arrangement and feel. It has George's handiwork all over it. R.I.P. George Martin.
