Or too long!
On May 25th 1967, the Beatles came to De Lane Lea Studios in Kingsway, London, to record George Harrison’s song It’s All Too Much for their forthcoming film, Yellow Submarine. As the studio wasn’t owned by EMI, none of the usual personnel like George Martin or Geoff Emerick from EMI Studios could accompany them, and it seems the Beatles produced the session themselves – which probably explains the rather chaotic recording! The final version of the song lasted for over 8 minutes. If it had been released in that form, it would have been the longest Beatles song ever. However, it was edited down for the film and for the album.
