In defense of Dark Overlord, my outtakes of the medley, excluding those recorded prior to Abbey Road from Let It Be or The White Album , have the Medley as Huge Melody 1 and 2. That does show that the songs were recorded in two separate groups intentionally, unless those tracks are composite, which I don't think they are.

She Came In Through The Bathroom Window >Golden Slumbers is a lot like Heartbreaker>Living Loving Maid by Led Zeppelin. Dark Overlord says the same about We Will Rock You > We Are The Champions, except here the songs follow each other on the original album, and are always played consecutively on the radio. (Or at least should be.) There is no sonic connection bridging the two songs, but they were made to follow each other.

"The Long One/Huge Medley" as it was known at the time was first compiled 30 July 1969.

It ran:
You Never Give Me Your Money
Sun King /Mean Mr. Mustard
Her Majesty
Polythene Pam /She Came In Through The Bathroom Window
Golden Slumbers /Carry That Weight
The End

A playback was done at the end the session, and Paul asked for Her Majesty to be cut out, so that acetates could be cut.

2nd Engineer John Kurlander asked what to do with it, and Paul told him to throw it away. He'd been told never to throw anything, and so after Paul left, he retrieved the tape, and added it onto the end of the Medley tape, separating them with 20 seconds of leader tape.

When the acetate was cut, George "Porky" Peckham didn't know Her Majesty wasn't meant to be there, and did the whole thing; leading to Paul's surprise, and the first hidden track.

My point here, @sir walter raleigh, is that that acetate featured their intent, not a split of the acetate later made by bootleggers.

Once again, I just have to say that The Abbey Road Medley is really special. I'm worried humanity peaked musically with it.
