On this day, from 10 am to 11 am, engineer Peter Vince created some rough mono mixes of “Got To Get You Into My Life“, which had been recorded on April 7, 8 and 11, 1966. Those mixes were made for the purpose of cutting acetate discs.
Though unremarked by Lewisohn, Barrett’s tape log indicates Harrison’s sitar introduction for Granny Smith (Love You To) was remixed for use as an edit piece during this session (the tape number being sequential to Got To Get You Into My Life). The edit piece comprised the first 0:34 seconds of the final remixes.From The Beatles Recording Reference Manual – Volume 2 – Help! through Revolver (1965-1966) by Jerry Hammack, 2021

- Peter Vince:
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 second book of the Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC)-nominated series, "The Beatles Recording Reference Manual: Volume 2: Help! through Revolver (1965-1966)" follows the evolution of the band from the end of Beatlemania with "Help!" through the introspection of "Rubber Soul" up to the sonic revolution of "Revolver". From the first take to the final remix, discover the making of the greatest recordings of all time.
Through extensive, fully-documented research, these books fill an important gap left by all other Beatles books published to date and provide a unique view into the recordings of the world's most successful pop music act.
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.
