The mix was made in a three-hour session beginning at 2.30pm, and was overseen by producer George Martin.
As so many overdubs had been added to the song, it was felt that further tape-to-tape copying would risk losing audio fidelity. To get around this, the stereo mix consisted of two separate mono mixes, one played through each left/right channel.
