The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions • Mark Lewisohn

The definitive guide for every Beatles recording sessions from 1962 to 1970.

We owe a lot to Mark Lewisohn for the creation of those session pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - the number of takes for each song, who contributed what, a description of the context and how each session went, various photographies... And an introductory interview with Paul McCartney!

About

From Anthology 2 liner notes:

As they had done with A Hard Day’s Night the year before so the Beatles entered into a crash series of recording sessions before shooting their new motion picture (untitled at first but eventually named Help!). Due to fly to the Bahamas on 22 February, the Beatles spent six days at EMI from 15th to the 20th, taping the 11 numbers they offered up as candidates for the movie soundtrack. Six of these were selected, two went on to the non-soundtrack side of the Help! album, two remained unissued and […] Yes It Is, was set aside as the B-side of the Beatles’ next single, Ticket To Ride.
