Studio Two, EMI Studios in London

A long (11:00 pm to 6:15 am) but decidedly unproductive session in which the Beatles committed to tape a mere sixteen minutes of an out-of-tune untitled instrumental jam comprising two guitars (one with vibrato effect), drums and a harmonium.

The Beatles - A Day in The Life: May 3, 1967

Studio Three, EMI Studios, London

The overdub of trumpets onto "Magical Mystery Tour", played by David Mason (his third Beatles session in as many months), Elgar Howarth, Roy Copestake and John Wilbraham. Each musician was paid £30: £15 for the basic session and an additional £15 because it ran over time, starting at 7:00 pm, but not finishing until 12:15 am.
