This was the 32nd day of the recording sessions for the “Revolver” album. From 7 pm to 1:30 am, The Beatles completed “Here, There And Everywhere” and “Got To Get You Into My Life“.
The Beatles had worked on Paul McCartney’s ballad “Here, There And Everywhere“ on June 14 and June 16, 1966. On this day, Paul double-tracked his lead vocals onto take 14. George Harrison also added an electric guitar part.
A first mono mix of “Here, There And Everywhere” was then done but never used. The track would be mixed in mono and stereo on June 21, 1966.
“Got To Get You Into My Life” had been recorded at the beginning of the “Revolver” sessions, on April 7, 8, 11 and May 18, 1966. On this day, it was decided to add a last overdub: George Harrison added a brief lead guitar part.
Four mono mixes were then made but never used.
There were only five [brass] players on the session, and when it came time to mix the song, Paul kept saying, ‘I wish we could make the brass sound bigger.’
George Martin replied, ‘Well, there’s no way we’re bringing them back in for another session – we’ve got to get the album wrapped up and there’s no more budget for outside players anyway.’ That’s when I came up with the idea of dubbing the horn track onto a fresh piece of two-track tape, then playing it back alongside the multritrack, but just slightly out of sync, which had the effect of doubling the horns.Geoff Emerick – From “Here, There and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of The Beatles“, 2006
The final mono mix would be done on June 20, while the stereo mix would be done on June 22, 1966.
