Isn't the phased vocal from the mono version?

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Apparently the newly discovered long lost mono mix of 'Lucy' has far more phasing, or flanging, on John's vocal so maybe it was that.

Question:  I hear Paul singing predominantly in the chorus; is that correct?

Paul definitely sings during the chorus, but so does John.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

In the opening line, are they singing the melody in unison like the old days?  Get that unique timbre of the blend between their voices.  It's funny as in this one, I hear Paul sticking out predominantly - I always thought he was singing solo, at least in the first two lines, before the harmony split!

I suppose Julian got the idea of stars being like diamonds from Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. I can picture Cyn and Julian looking at the stars and saying the nursery rhyme.
