The mix was never intended for release. It was instead used for The Beatles to mime to during the recording of The Music Of Lennon And McCartney, a television special filmed in Manchester on 1 and 2 November.

After listening to the mix, The Beatles decided that the song required more vocals. These were added on 29 October 1965, along with a second harmonium part.
