Recording in Paris

January 29, 1964

The Beatles record at Pathe Marconi Studios in Paris, the one and only time they record as a group outside the confines of England.  To facilitate their growing popularity on the continent, they use previously recorded instrument tracks and sing two hits in German, finishing "Sie Leibt Dich" and "Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand".  Their exposure to the German language during their long residencies in Hamburg as a developing band helped with proper conversational pronunciation,  I'm sure.

They lay down tracks for a brand new record "Can't Buy Me Love".  Writing and recording world beating songs has become second nature to them now.

Also, Paul makes a demo of "One and One is Two" in their Paris Hotel Room.  See Beatles Rarity - One and One is Two
