About

This was the 27th day of the recording sessions for the “Revolver” album.


From 7 pm to 12 pm, four tracks of the upcoming album were mixed in mono.

And Your Bird Can Sing” had been mixed in mono, for inclusion in the US album “Yesterday And Today“, on May 12, 1966. On this day, it was mixed in mono for inclusion in “Revolver“.

Six mono mixes of “For No One” were then done from take 14. But another two attempts would be needed, on June 21, to create the final mono mix released on “Revolver“.

Like “And Your Bird Can Sing“, “I’m Only Sleeping” had been mixed in mono, for inclusion in the US album “Yesterday And Today“, on May 12. On this day, two mono mixes were done. Remix Mono 6 was released in “Revolver“.

Nine attempts at mixing “Tomorrow Never Knows” (labelled remix 1 to remix 9) were done on April 27, 1966. On this day, three further attempts (remix 10 to 12) were done. Remix Mono 11 was released on the first UK pressing of “Revolver, but George Martin changed his mind about the best version of the song and decided to use Remix Mono 8 (from April 27) for all further mono releases.


The day was not over when all this mixing activity ended. From 12 pm to 1:30 am, Paul McCartney worked on “Eleanor Rigby” and added two vocal lines (“aah, look at all the lonely people”) replacing the congas and finger cymbal overdubs done on April 29, 1966.

Eleanor Rigby” would be mixed in mono and stereo on June 22, 1966.
