The Beatles - A Day in The Life: October 6, 1964 (Tuesday)

Studio Two, EMI Studios, London

Recording at Abbey Road from 3:00 to 6:45 and 7:00 to 10:00 pm, taping 13 takes of "Eight Days A Week" and experimenting all the while with various ways of opening and closing this new song - a novel fade-up at the start and fade-down at the end was decided upon, effected at later mix stages. The recording was completed on this day except for some edit pieces done on Sunday, October 18th.

The session tapes reveal that another new song, "I Feel Fine", was being worked out at this time, John strumming its distinctive guitar riff between takes of "Eight Days A Week".
