Apple Studios, Savile Row, London
Producer:
George Martin
Engineer: Glyn Johns
This was the 11th day of the Get Back/Let It Be sessions, and the second to take place at The Beatles' Apple Studios in London.


It was also the first to feature Billy Preston, who had been invited to Apple by George Harrison. Preston had first met The Beatles in Hamburg in the early 1960s, and was in London playing with Ray Charles.
His presence on piano and keyboards helped flesh out the sound considerably, which was helpful given the 'no overdubs' rule of the sessions. The mood within the sessions was greatly improved, with greater focus on the songs they intended to perform in the live special, and fewer displacement activities such as cover versions and improvisations.
Three songs in particular received the bulk of The Beatles' attentions on this day: Don't Let Me Down, I've Got A Feeling and Dig A Pony. Versions of I've Got A Feeling and Dig A Pony from the session were included on 1996's Anthology 3.
This version of I've Got A Feeling, plus different ones of Dig A Pony and Don't Let Me Down, were selected for Glyn Johns' first Get Back album, which was rejected for release by The Beatles. Also included were Rocker, a Beatles jam in the style of Chuck Berry, and a cover version of The Drifters' Save The Last Dance For Me.
The only other notable attempt at a cover version from this day was A Taste Of Honey, first recorded by The Beatles in early 1963 for the Please Please Me album. On this day, however, the performance broke down almost before it even got going.
