George Harrison, his wife Pattie and The Beatles’ assistant Mal Evans had flown to Greece on 17 August 1968 for a brief holiday. On this day they returned to London.
In Harrison’s absence, the rest of The Beatles continued recording the White Album, working on ‘Yer Blues’, ‘Mother Nature’s Son’, ‘Wild Honey Pie’ and ‘Etcetera’.
