The Beatles completed the recording of ‘Dear Prudence’ during this 5-11pm session, which took place at Trident Studios, an eight-track facility in London’s Soho.
Paul McCartney was the only Beatle to play at the session, recording piano and flügelhorn parts.
Rough mono and stereo mixes were also made on this day, although neither was used on the White Album. A second mono mix, also unused, was made on 5 October 1968, and final mixes were made at Abbey Road on 13 October.
