Recording: Glass Onion

Studio Two, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: Chris Thomas
Engineer: Ken Scott

Having recorded the rhythm track for ‘Glass Onion’ during the previous day’s session, The Beatles began overdubbing onto the penultimate attempt, take 33.

Tambourine and a lead vocal were the first to be recorded. Afterwards John Lennon manually double tracked his vocals in places.

The session was a relatively brief one, by The Beatles’ 1968 standards, lasting from 8.30pm-1.30am.
