Magical History Tour: May 6, 1969

Today in Beatles history, 1969, in the hallowed, hollowed halls of Abbey Road studios, George Martin worked feverishly through 36 takes to get a good recording of "You Never Give Me Your Money".  After numerous technical difficulties - John could not be detached from Yoko's face, Ringo kept disappearing to order carry-out, George was busy contemplating the inner meaning of the floor, and Paul was still very much dead - the 30th take was used for stereo mixing.

(Also on this date, in 1968, Cilla Black's single, "Step Inside Love", was released in the U.S.  But apart from the fact that Macca wrote the song, really, who gives a sh*t?)
