Thu, February 18th, 1965  The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Two, EMI Studios, London). Recording "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" (9 takes). Flautist Johnnie Scott is called in to record tenor flute and alto flute parts for John's song. Paul's "Tell Me What You See" is completed in four takes. The Beatles also record one take of a song intended as Ringo's vocal contribution for the next album, the Lennon-McCartney song "If You've Got Trouble". A few overdubs were recorded to the track, but it was judged a failure and shelved indefinitely. "The Beatles Anthology 2" includes "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" before the flute overdub (Disc one, Track 4). Also on "Anthology 2" is the previously-unreleased "If You've Got Trouble" (Disc one, Track 5).
