... with John and Paul putting together the medley

John and Paul putting together the Abbey Road medley. Photo by Linda McCartney, 1969.

Linda: "They were putting together the medley, Paul had asked John for undeveloped songs, and so John threw in ‘mean Mr Mustard’ and Paul put in ‘She Came In Through The Bathroom Window’. I remember Paul at home working out on that notepad the ways in which he could join these fragments together. This picture is from the moment he showed the notes to John to get his comments.”
