Mixing: Get Back

Two months after the Let It Be sessions ended, EMI was keen to release a new Beatles single from the recordings. ‘Get Back’ was chosen, and was mixed in mono on this day.

The four mono mixes were done by balance engineer Jeff Jarratt, after which acetate discs were cut ready for the single’s pressing. However, it was remixed at Paul McCartney’s insistence on 7 April 1969, meaning this day’s work was left unused.
