Ringo recorded a double-tracked lead vocal on 3 October 1963, with John and Paul adding backing vocals on the same day. The backing vocals were recorded together with Ringo’s first vocal on track 2 of take 14, an overdub of the backing track, take 7 — recorded 12 September, while his second vocal went onto track 2 as an overdub onto take 15. Leaving just a tambourine overdub onto track 1 of take 16 to finish the song.

So, does that indicate that Ringo double-tracked his lead vocal, but didn’t harmonize along with Paul and John during any of the choruses, or the coda?

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

I would say that the backing vocals, which are more prevalent during the choruses and coda, are them sitting there behind Ringo rather than full-on harmonising. Their voices just behind his gave him something to sit on, which could be a reason they were done with his first vocal.

Ah, ok. 

(I just viewed the ’64 Washington Coliseum performance of the song to watch Ringo throughout the song; and yeah he does appear to be singing that chorus along with his two bandmates; but I still can’t hear his voice in the blend, aside from a bit during the coda)

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

Ringo often wasn’t brilliantly miked for his vocals live, not being able to do the easy lean-in to the mike the others could do, and with the mike picking up the drums as well as his vocal. Washington Coliseum, while a great spectacle, was probably one of their worst technically because of it being done in the round, and the constant repositioning of a set-up that wasn’t up to the audience size. Try out a later live version, like Hollywood Bowl (bootleg) and you only really hear J&P toward the second half of the chorus lines, especially on the “man”.

Ooh right, I hadn’t even considered the 360-degree circumstances of that particular gig! That would be quite a factor indeed.

But it’s not surprising that Ritchie’s voice would be off-mike a lot, they way he keeps up the hair-shaking while rocking out those chorusesheart

The band The Warning, whose drummer often sings, uses one of those little mics taped to the side of her face. Obviously this wasn’t a luxury the Beatles had in the 60s, but I think it’s probably the ideal way to mic a drummer for singing. I suppose she does have to be careful not to bump into it while playing, headbanging, etc. and make weird noises, but I think it’s a fair compromise.

Is that the power trio consisting of the three Mexican sisters?

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.
