George Martin decides the running order for Rubber Soul

The day after the final mixes for Rubber Soul were made, producer George Martin finalised the running order for the songs.

Once the sequencing had been decided, Martin telephoned the running order to EMI Studios at Abbey Road. On 17 and 19 November master discs were made, and the album was quickly manufactured ahead of its UK release on 3 December 1965.
