The Beatles - A Day in The Life: February 22, 1969

There was a fine line dividing between the end of sessions for Get Back and the beginning of sessions for Abbey Road. Although work on Abbey Road did not begin until July - a number of the album's songs were well under way by then. One song was John's "I Want You" (She's so heavy) first rehearsed at Apple on January 29th and now recorded properly at Trident with 35 takes of the basic track plus guide vocal.

The best takes of the day were nine, 20 and 32, and an edit of the three was made on the following day. Work would continue on I Want You (She's So Heavy) until August 1969.
