The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: October 13, 1968

Studio Two, EMI Studios in London

This was the Beatles first session on a Sunday since "Hey Bulldog". John Lennon completed the ballad "Julia". He taped it alone, the only solo Lennon recording in the Beatles Canon - by twice singing alone to his acoustic guitar accompaniment. A spot of mixing completed this session, "Julia, Dear Prudence and Blackbird" were mixed into mono and stereo, "Wild Honey Pie" and "Back In the USSR" into stereo only.
