Mark Lewisohn’s The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions describes today’s studio work with precise brevity:

The re-recording, as an overdub, of Ringo’s lead vocal for “Octopus’s Garden,” and four studio remixes of that song, the fourth deemed “best.”

After this the “OG” tape would sit in storage for awhile, abandoned and neglected, then be brought out for more overdubs during the Abbey Road sessions.

Lewisohn adds:

Before this session began, there was a four-hour playback of recently recorded titles in the control room of studio three, 2:20–6:30pm.

How much would you pay to sit around with The Beatles for a few hours listening to their latest tunes? I ask because there’s been good progress on the time machine lately, so it seems like a good idea to establish a price point.
