About

Recording #BeatlesForSale. #1964 ➿ “It was getting to be really exciting in the studio. We did it all in there: rehearsing, recording and finishing songs. We never hired a rehearsal room to run down the songs, because a lot of them weren’t finished. The ideas were there for the first verse, or a chorus, but it could be changed by the writers as we were doing it, or if anyone had a good idea.” – Ringo ➿ Listen: http://gnikn.us/Beatles4Sale ➿ Photo © Apple Corps Ltd.
