This reel is the first reel of this session. It is straight recordings of the basic performances. No overdubs were done on this reel. Take 10 of "There's A Place", with further overdubs on reel E48877, would form the basis if the final take. Take 1 and the count-in from take 9 of "I Saw Her Standing There" ("17"), also with further overdubs on reel E48877, would form the basis if the final take. Apparently, either takes 1 or 2 were, initially, deemed best because takes 3-5 are edit pieces obviously intended to be spliced into one of the previous takes. An official mix of "I Saw Her Standing There" (take 9) can be found on Anthology 1.
