    John’s Rubber Soul Jacket and George’s Salisbury Plain jacket…on the same day??? Are those partitions the actual ‘props’ for the I Need You/ The Night Before scenes? Awesome photo. George Martin always placed the boy’s interests above all else. From the control room or anywhere, he is always watching THEM! What a Champ. Great Job, Greg!

    George Martin. How can someone so square be so damn hip. I love that guy.

    Best guess is ‘dialogue replacement’ session for the movie Help. There was lots of silly vocal work done later in post. Think of John and Ringo walking to the post box to mail a letter – and John is reciting one of his poems – cleary put in at a later stage. It also makes sense of why they would be holding scripts.

    Have you seen the lavish, deluxe book Recording The Beatles (not to be confused with Mark Lewisohn’s book) that came out a few years back? The “mystery session” is explained in there – it’s CTS Studios, London and vocal work being done to the title sequence in Help! which explains why there are at least three different mixes of the track.

    Hah!, Datey, so i was right!, this is where the unique mono 7′ single vocal comes from.

    It’s the film version – at least the one that was used in the original 1965 print of the film. The mono 7″ single vocal is different again.
