While The Beatles were filming A Hard Day’s Night at Twickenham Film Studios, George Martin oversaw stereo mixes of the group’s two German-language recordings, ‘Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand’ and ‘Sie Liebt Dich’.
The session took place from 10am to midday. After the mixes were ready, copies were sent to West Germany and the USA for release.
