About

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 first attempt at crossfading “You Never Give Me Your Money” into “Sun King” would be done on the following day, August 14, 1969.
