The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Wednesday, September 11, 1963

Studio Two, EMI Studios, London

Back to EMI for more work on the second album, to be released as "With The Beatles". From 2:30 to 6:00 pm the group recorded three new Lennon-McCartney numbers: one take of "I Wanna Be Your Man", Ringo's vocal vehicle on the album (the previous day, John and Paul had also given it to the Rolling Stones, they taped their version on October 7th, released it on November 1st and it was their first top 20 hit within a month), two takes of "Little Child" and 15 takes of "All I've Got To Do".

In the evening session, 7:00 to 10:15 pm, nine takes were recorded of another Lennon-McCartney song, "Not A Second Time", and the first seven of "Don't Bother Me", George Harrison's debut as a composer.
