The Beatles - A Day in The Life: March 23, 1967

Studio Two, EMI Studios in London

Another attempt at recording the vocals for "Getting Better", overdubbed onto take 14. A reduction mixdown into take 15 and overdubbing of bongos onto this completed the recording, which was then mixed into mono before the end of this 7:00 pm to 3:45 am session. But it wasn't the usual team of George Martin and Geoff Emerick doing the recording and mixing - they were otherwise engaged this night so another EMI Studios balance engineer, Peter Vince, fulfilled both these roles.
