Beatles recording sessions, deconstructed

beatles

Here are three short audio clips explaining the recording sessions for The Beatles’ songs A Day In The Life, Come Together, and She’s Leaving Home.

Highlights include a great clip of Lennon singing his FACE off in studio, creating a raw, punchy guide track in order to give the orchestra some extra energy. There are also some guitar licks that never made it into the final tracks, and lots of insights about how to record onto a four-track. Fascinating stuff; a great listen. ~9 minutes total running time.
