The Beatles - A Day in The Life: September 29, 1964 (Tuesday)

Studio Two, EMI Studios, London

With their remarkable North American jaunt now past, but a British concert tour just around the corner, the Beatles quickly returned their attention to recording, and the completion of their second album of 1964. They taped three songs this day at Abbey Road, Lennon-McCartney compositions all, recording four takes of "Every Little Thing" (George arrived late and didn't play on these takes of the song) and the first seven of "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" between 2:30 and 6:30 pm. They then resumed at 7:00 to complete the latter song with 12 more takes and begin the recording of "What You're Doing" - by session's end, 10:45 pm, seven takes of this song's rhythm track had been taped.
