The Beatles - A Day in The Life: August 20, 1968
-The Beatles in the recording studio (Studios Three and Two, EMI Studios, London). Two separate sessions, with John Lennon and Ringo Starr in Studio Three and Paul McCartney in Studio Two. George Harrison is in Greece, having left suddenly on a four-day trip. John and Ringo complete Yer Blues, recording Ringo’s intro ("two, three..."). Paul works on Mother Nature’s Son, adding overdubs that include the recording of two trumpets and two trombones. Engineer Ken Scott will later recall that John and Ringo walked in during Paul’s session and that the sudden negative tension that immediately developed between Paul and the others was striking. When John and Ringo left, things returned to normal. Late in Paul’s session, he records the demo for a song named Etcetera. This is followed by Wild Honey Pie, which is recorded in its entirety.
