About

On this day, “Revolution 1” was completed, with the final mono and stereo mixes being prepared (replacing those prepared on June 21). “Revolution 9” was edited from 9:05 to 8:12 and considered completed as well (the mono mix was prepared as a fold-down of the stereo mix on August 26).

John Lennon was the only Beatles at this session. Paul McCartney was travelling back from the USA, and George Harrison was producing Jackie Lomax.

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!

The Beatles Bible

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.
