Remarks
The UK stereo mix also appearing on the British double EP Magical Mystery Tour set has an intro that is a couple of seconds (ie piano riffs) longer than the US LP Magical Mystery Tour version. Bass, drum and lead vocal overdubs added on the following day. Backing vocal and orchestration overdubs added on Sep. 27-28, 1967. The song becomes fake stereo at the point of the radio broadcast sound effect using the BBC broadcast of King Lear. A cymbal crash is apparent after the first verse that was mixed out of the mono versions. This version also appears on The Beatles 1967-1970 double CD set.
