Martin’s soundtrack for the Yellow Submarine film was nearing completion, but there were still sections which needed attention. This day’s copy of Harrison’s vocals was most likely to help in the construction of certain sections in the score.
None of The Beatles were present for this session, which took place from 12.00-1pm in the control room of Abbey Road’s Studio Two.
