Four days earlier, on August 2, 1968, three stereo mixes of “Hey Jude” were made at Trident Studios.

On this day, still at Trident Studios, The Beatles created a first mono mix from the third stereo mix, rather than using the eight-track tape.

This mono mix would not be used, and new mono mixes would be created at Abbey Road on August 8, 1968.

And an introductory interview with Paul McCartney!

If we like to think, in all modesty, that the Paul McCartney Project is the best online ressource for everything Paul McCartney, The Beatles Bible is for sure the definitive online site focused on the Beatles. There are obviously some overlap in terms of content between the two sites, but also some major differences in terms of approach.
