The session began at 10am and lasted three hours. The songs worked on, in order, were: ‘I’ll Follow The Sun’, ‘Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby’, ‘Rock And Roll Music’, ‘Words Of Love’, ‘Mr Moonlight’, ‘I Don’t Want To Spoil The Party’, ‘I’m A Loser’, ‘Baby’s In Black’, ‘No Reply’ and I Feel Fine.
As with the mono mix session on 27 October, two stereo versions of Mr Moonlight were made, from takes 4 and 8. These were edited together at the end of the day, after which Beatles For Sale was complete.
