The sister of actress Mia Farrow who was called Prudence (I don't know if her surname was Farrow too, though). She was meditating all the time and John and George tried to persuade her to come out of her tent.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

The song is Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite , but I'm less certain about who played it. I think it's George Harrison ?

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

The song is right, the personnel is not. Mal Evans played the bass harmonica on BFTBOMK

Sorry, I haven't got the slightest idea how the musician is called. The only thing I know is that he also played the harpsichord solo on Piggies and was some sort of assistant of George Martin, I think. Yeah, that's all I know, sorry!ahdn_paul_01

Chris Thomas is his name. Great session player for the Beatles in the late sixties. You're correct that he also plays on Piggies , but unfortunately you get no points. 

Thank you for playing honestly though!

I'm not entirely sure on this and correct me if i'm wrong, but wouldn't it be That Means A Lot , i know it had a reduction mix done so it's possible that it's the correct answer.

There were actually two countries that released it on Apple: The Netherlands and Uruguay.

That is a proper 1000 pointer!

Well then Ron, you've got your points. I didn't know that it was also released in The Netherlands. You know your dates, so my other 1000 pointers didn't seem to give you any trouble at all. 

@Dark Overlord, Help was the first song to use a reduction mix. Check Joe's article on the song for confirmation. 

@The Hole Got Fixed songs/releases for 500

Name all of the Beatles songs with 'Baby' in the title.

Okay, @sir walter raleigh, what are you pointing to in Joe's article on Help !.

In fact, Joe specifically rejects it in this from the comments, dated 27 September 2010:

It wasn't the first. That Means A Lot had one, and there may be others (I don’t have time to research it right now).

Which would make DO correct. That Means a Lot is certainly the earliest reduction I know of.

Nice job DO and Ron. I read that in the article a while ago and thought it was a cool fact. You certainly get the 900 points @Dark Overlord
