Studio Two, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: George Martin
Engineer: Geoff Emerick
Work on both ‘Revolution 1’ and ‘Revolution 9’ finished on this day, with a final mixing and editing session which took place from 2-8pm.
‘Revolution 1’ had five new stereo mixes made, numbered 8-12, which superseded those made on 21 June 1968. ‘Revolution 9’ was then edited from 9’05” to a slightly more palatable 8’12”.
The session ended with tape copies being made of stereo mix 12 of ‘Revolution 1’ and the edit of stereo mix 2 of ‘Revolution 1’. After this both tracks were ready for release.
John Lennon was the only member of The Beatles present for this session. Paul McCartney was returning from the United States on this day, and George Harrison was elsewhere at EMI Studios producing and performing on Jackie Lomax’s song ‘Sour Milk Sea’.
