49 years ago today The Beatles started recording a new John Lennon song called ‘Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite’ at Abbey Road studios. John’s lyrics and idea for the song came from an antique poster advertising a circus performance scheduled to take place in Rochdale, Lancashire, in February 1843. John purchased the poster in Sevenoaks on January 31 while The Beatles were on location for the filming of the ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ promotional film.
