At the very end of "Octopus's Garden" on the transition into "Lady Madonna," at about 3:15, there's thunder and rain sound effects. Does anyone know if that comes from something released by the Beatles, or whether it's just a random sound effect? George Martin is on record as saying everything you hear on this album comes from a Beatles record, but then again, he just as quickly noted that they included a "wood pigeon" sound effect on "Because," so … I suppose not everything is from a Beatles record. Still – thunder and rain? I've been racking my brains trying to think if that sound effect was ever used, even if it was just on an instrumental from "Yellow Submarine" or something like that.

Not a bit like Cagney.

I've wondered that about a few effects.

There's also a funky bassline in the final minute of Hey Jude, which I swear isn't on the original record. I think it's something that McCartney plays live nowadays, but surely not in 1968. Perhaps Giles M pieced it together in Pro Tools.
