Recording session at EMI Studios No. 2 (19:00–22:45) during which they recorded You Really Got A Hold On Me, Money (That’s What I Want), Devil In Her Heart and Till There Was You.

First session for ‘With The Beatles’. They had managed to record their entire debut LP in a single day in February ’64, but now that they were famous they started slacking – and they needed an entire six days spread over four months for the follow-up. (The other sessions were on the 30th July, 11th, 12th of September, and the 3rd and 23rd October.)
