Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Mary McCartney, daughter of Paul, secures access to music royalty in this star-studded celebration of London's Abbey Road Studios. The focus is squarely on the interviews, with Paul McCartney proving amiable as he discusses how his self-declared band of "buskers" blossomed at the venue. Elton John and Jimmy Page serve reminders that megastars were once starry-eyed newcomers, while Pink Floyd pitch in warmly, and Kate Bush, Nile Rodgers and Celeste add lively commentaries. So do fractious Oasis brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher - even interviewed separately, they disagree on everything. Segments devoted to Jacqueline du Pré, Fela Kuti and an enthused John Williams help enrich the documentary, while producer Giles Martin, son of George, compares the studio to a teapot infused with the flavours of previous brews. As Mary McCartney's affectionate tribute attests, these walls hold many memories.
