Mixing: She Loves You

Room 53, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Engineer: Geoff Emerick

George Martin was not present for this third stereo mixing session for the UK compilation A Collection Of Beatles Oldies compilation, which was released on 9 December 1966, so balance engineer Geoff Emerick oversaw the work.

Two mixes of She Loves You were made during a 90-minute session. The original two-track tapes had been destroyed shortly after the song was recorded, so Emerick created a mock stereo version by slashing the treble frequencies from the left channel and removing the bass from the right.
