On this day, from 5 pm to 3 am, The Beatles completed “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey“. John Lennon recorded a new lead vocal on Take 10, replacing the vocal recorded on July 1.
As usual, John was wanting his voice to sound different. He would say, ‘I want to sound like somebody from the moon’ or anything different. ‘Make it different!’ And at that time there wasn’t the range of instant effects available today.Engineer Richard Lush – From “The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions” by Mark Lewisohn
Five attempts at a mono mix were then done. But the final mono and stereo mixes would be made on October 12.

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.
