Olympic Sound Studios, Barnes, London
Producer: Glyn Johns
When The Beatles decided that the unreleased Get Back album should be the soundtrack for Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s documentary, Glyn Johns was asked to compile a set of songs that better reflected the film’s content.
The session took place at Olympic Sound Studios in London, from 1-2.30pm. Johns had two further sessions working on the album, on 21 December and 5 January 1970. Despite his efforts, however, The Beatles again rejected Johns’ work and in early 1970 Phil Spector was called in to complete the task.
