The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: April 29, 1969

Octopus's Garden - Today the Beatles continued the recording of Ringo Starr's second-recorded composition.

The Beatles had recorded 32 takes of the backing track earlier in the month. Then Ringo Starr erased his guide vocals by recording two lead vocal tracks, including some harmonies in places. Also recorded was a piano part during the bridges, although it is unclear whether this was from this day or the 26th.

Four stereo mixes of Octopus's Garden were made at the end of the session. However, more overdubs were added in July 1969, rendering these unnecessary.
