The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: April 7, 1967

Studio Two, EMI Studios, London

The Beatles were mostly absent when the stereo mixes of Sgt. Pepper were prepared - they considered mono of paramount importance and so were always around for these, but were generally content to leave the stereos to George Martin and Geoff Emerick. Working this day from 7:00 pm to 1:00 am, they produced stereo masters of "With A Little Help From My Friends" (with its preceding crossfade into the title song). "Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite!", "Fixing A Hole", and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds".
