Mixing: She’s A Woman, Eight Days A Week

Studio Two (control room), EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: George Martin
Engineer: Norman Smith

It is not known whether The Beatles attended this mixing session for two of their recently-recorded songs. 12 October 1964 was a rest day from their tour of Britain..


The first song to be worked on, from 10-10.30am, was She's A Woman, which would become the b-side of their single I Feel Fine. Both mono and stereo mixes were made. The mono mix was used in the UK only; one for the US market was made on 21 October.

In the afternoon, from 2.30-3pm, George Martin oversaw a mono mix of Eight Days A Week. At the time it was thought that the song would become the next single, although it wasn't to be.
