From Wikipedia:

John Timperley (11 January 1940 – 20 September 2006), was a British audio engineer, who worked on recordings of a number of important musicians and groups from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Timperley was influential in the music recording industry in the United Kingdom and other countries. He gained his training at the IBC studies in London in the late 1950s, working with his long time friend, Keith Grant, primarily on classical recordings and the early pop music. He then worked at Ryemuse Studios (later known as Mayfair Studios) where he recorded Cream’s first LP and numerous hits in the 1960s.

At this time Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett, Shirley Bassey Thelonious Monk, Count Bassie and Stephane Grappelli all recorded at Chappell under Timperly’s control. During this time he was involved in the recordings for Magical Mystery Tour where he first met Paul McCartney, establishing a relationship which continued on and off throughout his career with works including the 1991 Liverpool Oratorio. In 1976 through 1977, Timperley was the sound engineer for Going for the One (1977) by Yes. […]
