Inside an Abbey Road Studios Recording Session

A few years ago,  I spent an incredible afternoon INSIDE Studio 2 at Abbey Road, watching the great Brazilian band ‘All You Need is Love’ record loads of Beatles songs.

I did a day tour for them the day before, and they kindly invited me to their recording session.

I was with them for three hours, and in that time they recorded 10 songs! And I thought the Beatles worked hard for the Please Please Please LP! Nearly every song was done in 3 takes or less.

They let me take photos – and I’m going to post some here.

The band are still going, but are now called ‘Hey Jude’
