Trident Studios, St Anne's Court, London
Engineer: Barry Sheffield
On this day, Trident Studios' in-house engineer Barry Sheffield made a safety copy of the edit. A rough mix was also made for John Lennon.
I Want You (She's So Heavy) was mostly recorded under the working title I Want You; the group settled upon the final name during the 11 August 1969 session in which they completed the song.
