The Beatles longest-ever session, working for a solid twenty-four hours, trying to decide the running order for the ‘White Album’. Only John and Paul attended, because George was in the States and Ringo was sunning himself at the beach. In the end they put all the animal songs on Side B, all the rock songs on Side C, and George had a song on each side. George Martin tried to convince them that it would be better to release one glorious 14-track album instead, but they were having none of it. Nobody wanted to sacrifice a song. is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
