De Lane Lea Sound Centre, London
Producer: George Martin
Although recording for his debut album Sentimental Journey was nearly complete by this date, Ringo Starr began work on a new song on this day, a cover of You Always Hurt The One You Love.
The session took place at De Lane Lea’s studio in Soho, London, from 2-5.30pm, with a mixing session following from 5.30-7.30pm.
You Always Hurt The One You Love had been a 1944 hit for The Mills Brothers. Starr’s version was arranged by Johnny Dankworth, who also conducted a 20-piece orchestra on the recording.
Work on the song concluded on 6 March 1970, with some additional overdubs and final mixes, at EMI Studios, Abbey Road.
