The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: June 7, 1967

Studio Two, EMI Studios, London

More crazy "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) recordings, developing into more crazy untitled, unstructured instrumental jams, with numerous takes of an amateurish flute track (played, presumably, by a Beatle), electric guitar, drums, organ and tambourine. George Harrison took home a rough mono mix of take 24, comprising 20 minutes of just such sounds, at the end of this 7:00 pm to 2:00 am session.

A press release announces the beginning of the "Yellow Submarine" film project. It is reported that The Beatles will provide at least three new songs for the soundtrack.
