Studio Two (control room), EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: Chris Thomas
Engineer: Jeff Jarratt
The new solo was added to take 27A of the song, and was performed by George Harrison. It was included in Glyn Johns' two unreleased Get Back albums.
The Beatles then turned their attentions to an old recording. You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) had been begun in May 1967, but recording had ceased the following month following the creation of a master edit of its various parts.
All of the song's vocals were added on this day. These included Lennon's nightclub MC, McCartney's crooner Denis O'Bell, ska-styled staccato, Pythonesque falsetto, mumbling and other sounds.
More effects were added to track four, including audience ambience and applause, and the sound of Beatles assistant Mal Evans running a spade through a heap of gravel.
Three mono mixes were made at the end of the session, which finished at 2am. The day began, however, with a playback of recently-recorded material, in the control room of Studio Three from 2.30-6.15pm.
