    The lost track

    When I was studing something about Beatles mixing procedures, about the art of a true guru like George Martin and EMI Maida Vale studios, for my “How to measure the sky” album, I came across this rare document that I share with you.
    In this video, in which Beatles producer George Martin and his son Giles, as well as George Harrison’s son Dhani, are listening to the source tracks from this wonderful song, and unexpectedly discover a take of George’s guitar that never made it into the final mix. A rare and magic moment! …and a bit ‘of envy! <;)
