Mixing: All You Need Is Love

7.00pm, Wednesday 21 June 1967 (46 years ago)

Studio Three (control room), EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: George Martin
Engineer: Geoff Emerick

With the basic backing track for All You Need Is Love largely complete, mono mixes were made on this day to be given to the BBC.

The purposes of the mixes were to demonstrate to Derek Burrell-Davis, who was directing the BBC’s segment of the Our World satellite broadcast, that a song would be ready in time.

Two rough mixes were made, and an acetate of the second was given to Burrell-Davis. It is likely that the other was used as a reference for the scoring of the orchestra, who began work on 23 June 1967.
