Leave the Capital

Leave the Capital

By Paul Hanley



When British bands took the world by storm in the mid-sixties, the world turned and looked at London. Despite the fact that the most successful of these bands hailed from the North West corner of England, for the USA, London was the source of these thrilling new sounds. And in many ways it was - The Beatles, The Hollies, and Herman's Hermits recorded all their hits with London-based producers, for London-based companies in London studios. And that's how it remained, until for Mancunian musicians became alive to the possibility of recording away from the capital. This book tells the story of Manchester music through the prism of two studios' key recordings.
