    The first photograph is 18th April 1969, Studio Three, recording session for “Old Brown Show”. Later Lennon and Harrison moved to Studio Two for the overdubbing of guitars on the introduction of “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”. The photograph was shot from behind the glass that separated Studio Three from Room 43, the storage room where the Moog synth would be setup a few months later. In the photograph they are visible Harrison’s Leslie 147R cabinet and his Telecaster strapped up and his Stratocaster leaned onto one of the studios famous red chairs.

    There is an anectode from that day in Lewisohn’s book, about Thomas Hartman, from the Aerovons working that day in another room at the studios. Hartman went into Room 43 to look for some equipment and oversaw this Beatles’ recording session through the window pane. He mentioned he heard Harrison recording the vocals for “Old Brown Shoe”, which was overdubbed on 18th April 1969.

    More great pics from the “Abbey Road” Sessions and one taken during the recording of “Old Brown Shoe”. Thanks to Miss Tammy and all who contributed. It would have been nice to have had these sessions filmed.

    I remember seeing the top three pics for the first time in early 1981 in the Club Sandwich tribute to John and being bowled over. Great shots.

    These are fantastic! Thank you. Hey Henry, were they using Twins or Pro Reverbs in the studio at this point?

  12. henry_the_horse says:

    Silverface Twin Reverbs. Harrison’s is visible behind Lennon in photographs 3, 4, 5, and 6. Lennon’s is visible on his left in photographs 4, 5, and 6. According to what it is known today, they never used Pro Reverbs during their Beatles’ lifetime.
