The Beatles - A Day in The Life: January 13, 1970

--US release of The Beatles soundtrack LP, Yellow Submarine (Apple). Songs: Yellow Submarine, Only a Northern Song, All Together Now, Hey Bulldog, It's All Too Much, and All You Need Is Love. Side two consists of instrumental soundtrack music by The George Martin Orchestra. 24 weeks on Billboard chart; highest position #2.

Incredibly, The Beatles (minus George Harrision, who quit the group three days earlier) return to Twickenham Film Studios and the "Get Back" project. It must have been a miserable day. When the rehearsal was scheduled to begin, only two Beatles attend, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. John Lennon makes a brief appearance late in the afternoon, almost as a gesture of contempt for the group. In his absence, Paul and Ringo discuss the difficulty of dealing with John when he has apparently appointed Yoko Ono to speak and act on his behalf.
