The Beatles - A Day in The Life: October 22, 1965 (Friday)

Studio Two, EMI Studios, London

The day began with a 10:30-11:30 morning session - probably without the Beatles in attendance - during which George Martin filled the hole in the middle of the otherwise complete "In My Life" with a beautiful baroque-style piano solo. To achieve the desired texture he played the piece at half-speed for playback at double-speed.

The Beatles were certainly around for one continous 2:30-11:30 pm session which saw them start fresh with a remake of "Nowhere Man" and conclude the recording in only three more takes.
