A Day In The Life In 1967

February 10, 2018

The Beatles 

recorded the orchestral build-up

for the middle and end of 'A Day in the Life'

on February 10th in 1967 

Paul McCartney conducting a 40-piece orchestra

At the Beatles' request...

The orchestra members arrived in full evening dress

along with novelty items

One violinist wore a red clown's nose

while another...a fake gorilla's paw on his bow hand

Others were wearing funny hats and other assorted novelties

The recording was filmed

for a possible 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' television special which was ultimately abandoned 

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mike Nesmith from The Monkees

 and Donovan also attended the session
