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.
