Michael Grafton-Green managed to score himself the best apprenticeship in the business when he walked into Abbey Road Studios in London in the late 1950s looking to train as an engineer just as the music scene was moving into overdrive.

He was hired as a tape operator, second engineer and disc-cutter, and in 1958 found himself in the studio working on Cliff Richard’s ‘Move It’, one of the first all-British rock and roll recordings. Most releases prior to this were covers of US songs.
