“You Never Give Me Your Money” was completed during this mixing session, which took place in the control room of EMI Studio Two from 2:30 pm to 9:15 pm.
On July 30, a reduction mix of “You Never Give Me Your Money” take 30 had been made and named take 40, and had received overdubs of backing vocals. On July 31, Paul McCartney had returned to take 30 to record some bass and piano overdubs.
On this day, it was decided that the final stereo mix would be an edit of take 30 and take 40. Eight attempts at this edit and stereo mix were made – numbered 20 to 27. In the end, remix 23 was deemed the best.

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!
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.
