Savoy Truffle (2018 Mix)

Written by on October 11, 2021

October 3, 1968: Working at Trident Studios in London on the “White Album,” the Beatles recorded the new George Harrison song “Savoy Truffle.” Lennon was away for a few days, so George, Paul, and Ringo recorded just one take of the basic track (drums, bass, and lead guitar). Overdubs took place on October 5, again at Trident, and then on October 11 and 14 (with John being present) at the EMI Studios at Abbey Road. “Savoy Truffle” would be one of the four Harrison songs on the album.

The song was inspired by Eric Clapton’s love of chocolates, particularly Mackintosh’s Good News.
