NOTES:
1.  Tuesday, 16th February, 1965
Studio Two: … 5.00-7.00pm. Recording: `Yes It Is' (takes 1-14). Studio Two: 7.00-10.00pm. Recording: 
`Yes It Is' (SI onto take 14). P: George Martin. E: Norman Smith. 2E: Ken Scott/Jerry Boys. …The 
final song of the day, which took five hours to record, was `Yes It Is', an exquisite and intricate 
three-part harmony ballad written by John and sung by John, Paul and George in a style reminiscent 
of `This Boy'. `Yes It Is' was not selected for the film soundtrack in preparation, nor was it 
Included on what was to become the Help! album. Instead it appeared merely as the B-side of the 
Beatles' next single, `Ticket To Ride', such was the group's embarrassment of songwriting riches. 
Predominant again was George Harrison and his tone pedal guitar. It took 14 takes to perfect the 
rhythm track and then three hours for John, Paul and George — all singing live — to get the harmony 
to everyone's satisfaction. This was recorded as an unnumbered overdub onto take 14. In previous years 
it would have become take 15. - Mark Lewisohn, 'The Beatles Recording Sessions', 1988 EMI Records Ltd.
2.  An interesting footnote is 'Yes It Is', Take 13.  A solo and slightly 'Goon-ish' effort by 
John Lennon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJ5nhyYShtM.
