The Beatles - A Day in The Life: January 8, 1970

The Beatles asked Glyn Johns to prepare a version of the Get Back/Let It Be tapes suitable for release as a long-player. This two-hour session was a remix session for the songs Let It Be and For You Blue.

Stereo remixes of both songs were made on this night, along with a vocal overdub onto For You Blue by George Harrison.

It took place at Olympic Sound Studios in Barnes, London, where The Beatles had recorded occasionally since 11 May 1967, when they taped the backing track for Baby You’re A Rich Man.

This was Harrison’s last Beatles session until the Anthology recordings in the 1990s - and it is not known whether any of the other Beatles attended.
