Recording: Oh! Darling, Come Together

Studio Three, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: George Martin
Engineers: Geoff Emerick, Phil McDonald

Overdubs were added to two Abbey Road songs during this 2.30-9.30pm recording session.

It began with Paul McCartney's penultimate attempt at recording a lead vocal take for Oh! Darling. He taped the final version during the next day's session.

The bulk of this session, however, was devoted to Come Together. John Lennon re-recorded his lead vocals onto track four, McCartney added electric piano onto track five, and electric guitar and maracas were taped onto six.

    I beleive it was John who played electric piano on the record after he looked over McCartney’s shoulder to learn it.
    According to Emericks book, he did all the backing vocals as well.
