The Sessions, a musical re-staging of a time when The Beatles greatest hits were recorded at Abbey Road studios in London, takes the audience back to the place where it all started.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM (REUTERS) - It's a blast from the past at "The Sessions" - A live re-staging of the Beatles at Abbey Road Studios.

At first glance, the look and feel of the show is almost like the real thing... but it's actually actors portraying the four Beatles in a production commemorating the place where The Beatles recorded some of their greatest hits in the '60s.

Even Geoff Emerick, the original sound engineer at Abby Road, worked on the show. He says, it seems like only yesterday.

Emerick, Abbey Road sound engineer and creative consultant on "The Sessions", said: "It seems as though it was only like eight weeks ago, but when I have been hearing some of these songs performed, I sort of tear up a bit because I know - it brings back a lot of memories of the past when they perform them... it's a huge memory you know and you sort of tear up a bit - you know."

The show playing at the Royal Albert Hall is dedicated to music producer George Martin, who died last month at the age of 90 and is endearingly remembered as the "fifth Beatle".
