About

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.

Also, some editing work was done on “Love You To“, known at this time under the working title “Granny Smith” (it had been recorded on April 11 and April 13).

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.

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.
