The Beatles - A Day in The Life: November 6, 1969
Today Ringo Starr had a recording session for his debut album, Sentimental Journey. He taped the song Stormy Weather with George Martin producing.
All this took place at Wessex Sound Studios in London. Ringo Starr had never recorded in the studio before, but several of the sessions were held there.
Stormy Weather, written by Ted Koehler and Harold Arlen, had been a hit in 1943 for Lena Horne. The new version was recorded with 18 musicians, conducted by George Martin, on four-track tape.
