Recording, mixing: You Never Give Me Your Money

Studios Two and Three, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: George Martin
Engineer: Phil McDonald

Two separate sessions took place in different studios on this day, for the recording and mixing of the Abbey Road song You Never Give Me Your Money.

The first session was held in Studio Three from 2.30-6pm. Backing vocals and tambourine were added to track five, and chimes were overdubbed onto track eight. Paul McCartney then wiped part of George Harrison's lead guitar part on track one to manually double-track his lead vocals during the second verse.

The second session was held in the control room of Studio Two, from 6-11pm. Six rough stereo mixes of You Never Give Me Your Money were made, although none was used; the song received further overdubs at a later date.
