The Beatles - A Day in The Life: March 2, 1967

Studio Two, EMI Studios, London

"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" was one of the quickest Sgt. Pepper recordings, one night from the rhythm track, another for overdubs. This 7:00 pm to 3:30 am session took care of the latter, with a succession of vari-speeded vocal and instrument recordings being added to take eight. Eleven mono mixes completed the night's work, the last being considered 'best', albeit only until the next session.
