This was the 30th day of the recording sessions for the “Revolver” album. From 7 pm to 2 am, The Beatles started recording Paul McCartney’s ballad “Here, There And Everywhere“.

“Here, There And Everywhere” — one of Paul’s favorite songs to this very day, and mine, too — was distinguished by the fact that we devoted three full days to it, which in that era was a lot of time. We also planned the track layout carefully so that there was a completely separate track that we could dedicate to bass, allowing Paul to focus on each and every note when he recorded the overdub. Later on, he would sometimes spend hours working out just how to get every note in his complex bass lines to “speak” correctly.

Four takes of the backing track were recorded on this day, with Paul McCartney on electric guitar and Ringo Starr on drums. Only take 4 was a complete take, and The Beatles decided to overdub it. Paul, John Lennon and George Harrison added backing vocals and finger clicks.

Two days later, on June 16, The Beatles decided to drop those efforts and restart “Here, There And Everywhere” from scratch.

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.
