The Beatles: Lady Madonna

The Beatles perform "Lady Madonna," a song that has become as relevant today as it was in the 1968 when it was first performed. These are trying times.

The song was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, England, during sessions on February 3 and 6, 1968, before the Beatles left for India. This single was the last release by the band on Parlophone in the United Kingdom and Capitol Records in the United States. All later albums, starting with "Hey Jude" in August 1968, were released on their own label, Apple.
