Work continued on the ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ song during this session, with the addition of more vocals and some initial mono mixes.
Four mono mixes were then made for demo purposes and cut onto acetates, presumably so the trumpets could be scored. This mix treated McCartney’s vocals with artificial double tracking and had louder pianos during the coda.
