Twickenham Film Studios, St. Margaret's, Twickenham and Studio Two, EMI Studios, London

After today's filming the Beatles returned to London for an unsuccessful evening's recording at Abbey Road. Booked from 7:00 until 9:00 pm - but running over until 10:00, they first attempted a re-make of "That Means A Lot" but abandoned the song again after five more uninspired takes (numbered 20-24). They then recorded some overdubs - of which instrument(s) is not specified on the EMI session documentation - onto the existing "best" take of "You're Going To Lose That Girl", although none was used for the released version.
