With all hands on deck again, today The Beatles got back to work on “Good Night.” After recording lead and backing vocals, they laid down several more takes of the backing track; the best of these was mixed and handed off to George Martin, who was tasked with creating an orchestral score.

This new information led me to do some further research on the Anthology 3 version of “Good Night,” which I posted the other day. Turns out only the first part of it was actually the rehearsal; it is crossfaded in the middle into the finished track, which is why you can hear strings on it.

Well, you probably don’t care that much, and I’m not sure I do either. Since the words have been spewing forth in great quantity in recent days, let’s keep this one short. Do try to catch up, though; there will be more tomorrow.
