This was the second of two sessions on consecutive days in which George Martin’s score for the Yellow Submarine film was re-recorded.
The initial orchestral sessions had taken place at Olympic Sound Studios, with the results being used in the film. The sessions were produced by Martin, and engineered by Keith Grant and George Chkiantz.
Martin conducted the 41-strong George Martin Orchestra in Studio One at EMI Studios. He co-produced the sessions with Ron Richards and John Burgess, with Geoff Emerick engineering and Nick Webb the tape op.
