Think For Yourself Sessions
The Beatles
Think For Yourself Sessions

Waiting for John to get back so they can carry on recording Think For Yourself. Begins with George Martin explaining a ‘booboo’ he made on the tapes.

George Martin: *explains*
George Harrison: Ah, naughty. John?
Paul: John love?
George Martin: Jonathan, what are you doing?
Someone: He’s just - where - is he messing behind the - I’ll get him.

me: [crawls through martin’s window at 11pm, sits next to him on the sofa] okay so like were you initially drawn to the scripts because you felt they had a lot of potential to work with or did you like how you got to moon over an attractive guy for once? how much negotiation was there between you, mark and steven, and the directors? how often did you stick to the strict direction and how often did they give you a bit more flexibility? on average what percentage of your lines do you do with a look? 

martin: how did you get into my flat?
