The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions • Mark Lewisohn
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!
From Anthology 3 liner notes:
Paul’s Rocky Raccoon was started and completed in a single eight-hour session – overdubs and all – the master being Take 10. Along the way the Beatles recorded a number of outtakes that underline both the fun nature of the song and the still changing lyric. This version is Take 8, which, while it may have started out as an attempt at recording the master, soon dissolves into levity.
