George Harrison missed The Beatles only 24-hour recording session, as he flew to Los Angeles on this day.
The visit was primarily for Harrison to produce songs for Jackie Lomax’s album Is This What You Want?. While there he also gave an appearance on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour on 15 November, and returned to England later that month.
