The Beatles had recorded the song ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ on 16 April 1964. Four days later mono and stereo mixes were made.
The mixes were made by producer George Martin without the other Beatles being present. The mixing session lasted from 2-3.15pm.
Afterwards the tapes were taken away by representatives of United Artists, the company behind the A Hard Day’s Night film and the US soundtrack release. The song was the last to be recorded for the soundtrack.
