Paul McCartney 1967 EMI Studio Abbey Road, London Autograph [Pepper Session] (UK). (Denise Werneck Collection)

A page which has been taken from a notebook that has been signed by Paul McCartney in black ballpoint pen. The autograph was obtained by Brazilian Beatles fan Denise Werneck outside EMI’s Abbey Road Studios on 4th February 1967 at 1:40 am.

It comes with a letter of authenticity from Denise (the original recipient) showing a photo taken at the time of signing, in part: “In the sixties I was a Beatles fan here in my native Rio de Janiero. My best friend Lizzie Bravo…and I went to London in early 1967 with the sole purpose of seeing the Beatles: we were very lucky and saw them many, many times. We used to wait with our new friends outside Paul’s house and EMI Studios to see the group…The signature on a piece of lined paper was obtained by myself outside EMI Studios at 1.40am on February 4th, 1967. Paul was wearing a navy blue suit and red shirt."

The page measures 12.5cm x 8.5cm (4.75 inches x 3.25 inches). The condition is very good.

Friday 3 February 1967: Recording: A Day In The Life

Studio Two, EMI Studios, Abbey Road

Further overdubs were added onto A Day In The Life during this session, which began at 7pm and finished at 1:15am the following morning. Each of them involved replacing previously-recorded parts.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr re-recorded the bass guitar and drum parts they had originally recorded on 20 January 1967.

McCartney then overdubbed his lead vocals onto track two, correcting the wrong word sung during the previous session.
