Others were wearing funny hats and other assorted novelties.  Martin later recalled that when he told some of Britain’s finest musicians that they were to play twenty-four bars of cacophonous, improvised crescendo, “they all looked at me as though I were completely mad.” The recording was filmed for a possible ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ television special which was ultimately abandoned. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mike Nesmith from The Monkees and Donovan also attended the session.
