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:
Written by Paul in the White Album period and rehearsed at Twickenham Film Studios during the Get Back/Let It Be sessions, Maxwell’s Silver Hammer was recorded for Abbey Road, the Beatles spending this day working on the basic track. To preserve the feel, Paul sang with every take, planning to re-record the vocal when the best instrumental recording was decided upon (this turned out to be Take 21). Presented here is the previously unreleased Take 5, lacking the many overdubbed elements – the anvil for one – that would feature in the master.
