Recording: Got To Get You Into My Life

Studio Two, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: George Martin
Engineer: Geoff Emerick

The first Revolver session in Abbey Road’s Studio Two saw the completion of the rhythm track of Paul McCartney‘s Got To Get You Into My Life.

The Beatles had begun work on the song on the previous day, but were unhappy with the results. On this day they recorded takes 6-8, the last of which became the basis of the final released version.

The session began at 2.30pm and finished at 9pm. McCartney played bass guitar, Ringo Starr was on drums, John Lennon played a rhythm guitar part, and George Harrison played a tambourine. During the coda George Martin performed an organ part.
