The Beatles had attempted to record Paul McCartney’s ‘I’m Looking Through You’ on 24 October 1965, but were unhappy with the results. They attempted a remake on this day, but it still wasn’t considered good enough for Rubber Soul.
The session lasted from 7pm-1am. Two takes were recorded, numbered two and three, with a number of overdubs added to the last of these.
