About

Nine attempts at mixing “Tomorrow Never Knows” (labelled remix 1 to remix 9) were done on April 27, 1966. On June 6, 1966, three further attempts (remix 10 to 12) were done. Remix Mono 11 was released on the first UK pressing of “Revolver”, but George Martin changed his mind about the best version of the song and decided to use Remix Mono 8 (from April 27) for all further mono releases.
