The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: October 26, 1965 (Tuesday)

Stereo mixes of "Drive My Car", "Day Tripper", "In My Life", "If I Needed Someone", "Norwegian Wood", and "Nowhere Man", were prepared by George Martin between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm this day in studio one at EMI.

Although the Beatles were beginning to attend mix sessions they certainly missed this one, instead collecting their MBE's from the Queen of Buckingham Palace and hosting a subsequent press conference at the Saville Theatre. There was, naturally, considerable newsreel, TV and radio news coverage of these events. (As an example, even the BBC Home Service's somewhat august news and current affairs program The World At One, anchored by William Harcastle, had four consecutive reports about the morning's activities, two from outside the Palace, one from inside and another commentating on the Beatles' arrival at the Saville.)
