I do. What song featured the only orchestral overdub (aka, an overdub they couldn't do themselves) prior to Let It Be was the first not to be Arranged by George Martin?

Was it You've got to Hide your Love Away perhaps? a-hard-days-night-paul-7 Or maybe She's Leaving Home?

I was thinking Savoy Truffle, but it is She's Leaving Home.

In the original MMT EP inner sleeve, there is a picture of John, Paul and Ringo eating what appears to be fish and chips out of the standard plastic takeaway box, so I guess that could be the answer, but I've also heard tales of the Beatles sending Mal out to get that particular meal during the Pepper sessions.

It's I Feel Fine. The Magical Mystery Tour one can't work because since it's only a picture, there's no song associated with that. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

It's time to blow the dust off of this thread and air it out again.

This one is from a book my wife bought me for Christmas.

There are 16 original Beatles songs that begin a capella - if even for one syllable. Name them.george-martin

Here you go, @Zig. Your post is on the previous page of this thread.

I dug this up for you as a result of this post
