EMI Studios: 30 July, 1968.


Nothing whatsoever to do with Kenwood, aside from the fact that they are about to make a stab at Hey Jude, written, as even people who have never heard of the Beatles know, by Paul on his way down to St George's Hill to visit Cyn and Julian. The footage from Experiment In Television: Music! is fascinating, if over familiar - presumably a new verite (not to mention lucrative) version could be compiled from all the existing film stock, assuming it does. At any rate, this is how they were arranged, left to right, in studio 2 that evening - something that is unclear from the footage itself. George is present and correct, though in the documentary he is up in the control room, generously offering "two crates if you do Twist and Shout". "Sources" (infallible) say he had absented himself "from the body of the kirk" following yet another free and frank exchange of views with JPM over the merits of using answering phrases on the guitar throughout the verses. Presumably, if that is true, this image was pre-"rumble".
