I was monkeying around with the individual tracks on the Sgt Pepper Reprise and I noticed this weird bit of banter between John and Paul right before the vocals kick in. It must have been really buried in the mix, because I can't hear it on the album version, no matter how hard I strain my ears. Anyway, I thought it was fun, so I'm sharing it here:

That version with the chatter is only available on the mono pressing of Sgt. Pepper . The Stereo version does not have it. 

If you like that kind of stuff, play the entire album along with the White Album . Both of those have the most difference between mono and stereo copies.

The further one travels, the less one knows

The Rock Band multi's and isolated channels of the 5.1 mixes are great for hearing isolated words and sounds that otherwise were buried. Its quite amazing how much was put into songs that sound quite straight-forward. There is a tinkling bell going off throughout All Together Now i never noticed until hearing it isolated. Only A Northern Song is complete chaos with all thats going on (rambling chatter, piano's being played without much thought on what exactly) - and you get to hear Paul's shocking dreadful trumpet playing in all its glory, and its quite fun hearing it being so awful.

Thanks! I'd never heard that before. Is it possible to isolate Paul's shouting at the end? I've always wondered what he says.

No, unfortunately, it sounds like they were all recording on the same mic/track for that one. This is what I hear at the end, though:

All (singing): ... hearts ... club ... band

Paul: Wooo!
John: Oooh ... oh my God , it kills me
George (singing): band-band-band, band, band, band

You weren't, by chance, thinking of the song "Hey Bulldog ," were you?

Not a bit like Cagney.

The find is interestnig. I went to hear the released version of the song with the music full blast, and I could hear some of the chatter, however like said it is barely audible. I guess you never notice something on a song unti it's pointed out. 

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

It is cute when John dashes-in on the right channel (on the stereo) and says:"byyeee".

Which is the second song on the album where John says “bye”’, the first being ‘She’s Leaving Home’, conveniently also the second last song on the side.
