The Beatles in the recording studio (Studios Three and Two, EMI Studios, London). Recording Come Together (8 takes). John Lennon’s stream of consciousness lyrics (part autobiographical, part sexual innuendo) are the song’s highlight. Chillingly, each verse is introduced with Lennon whispering “shoot me.” Engineer, Geoff Emerick, returns to working full-time with The Beatles. He had quit working with them when tensions and tempers ran high during the "White Album" recording sessions. Now Emerick is chief balance engineer at Apple Studios, and when he comes into the Abbey Road studios as a freelance engineer, his old EMI buddies turn a cold shoulder to him. Take 1 of Come Together was released on The Beatles Anthology 3 (Disc two, Track 17).
