John Lennon spent this session, which took place from 2.30-5.45pm, assembling sound effects for ‘Revolution 9’.
Lennon spent the next few days working on effects and tape loops, which were mostly assembled into a master reel on 20 June 1968. For this he worked largely just in the company of his girlfriend Yoko Ono, although he was joined on the 20th by George Harrison.
