A master take of I Want You (She's So Heavy) was assembled during this session, from some of the 35 takes recorded on the previous day.

The first part of the song was taken from take nine; a middle section came from take 20; and the remainder was from take 32. These were all edited into a single master take, which became the basis for further overdubs in the months that followed.

At this stage - indeed, right up until the final day of work on the song - it was known simply as I Want You.
