This was the second recording session for the Sgt Pepper song ‘Getting Better’.

The work had been mixed down to one track at the end of the previous day’s session. The tape was then filled with Ringo Starr’s snare and bass drums on track two, Paul McCartney bass guitar on track three, and George Harrison’s tambura on track four.

The session ended at 4am on the morning of 11 March 1967. Work continued on ‘Getting Better’ on the evenings of 21 and 23 March.
