On this day, Paul McCartney worked in EMI Studio Two, while Ringo Starr and George Martin were in Studio One to continue the work on Ringo’s debut album, “Sentimental Journey“.

From 10 am to 1 pm, Paul and engineer Phil McDonald mixed “Hot As Sun“, recorded at Morgan Studios earlier in the month. They also made a copy of the best mix of “Maybe I’m Amazed“, made two days earlier, on February 22.

From 3:30 pm to 6:15 pm, they remixed “Every Night“, recorded the day before.

On this day, Paul, assisted by engineer John Kurlander, also mixed “Don’t Cry Baby“, a brief track where we hear Paul singing a lullaby to his daughter. The track was mixed into the beginning of “Oo You” and was only released in 2011, on the “McCartney – Archive Collection“.

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.
