Primary location in my collectionCD: Beatles Extras Vol. 2
An early take with John Lennon's acoustic guitar backing, lead vocal and Paul McCartney's drums mixed low. The vocal is emphasized in the mix. Once they get the proper take Paul's bass and backing vocals and John's lead guitar parts would be added. Incomplete recording as it begins on the second verse (at the line about Peter Brown). Another later take from this session that is somewhat faster is included as bonus material on the 50th anniversary 2019 edition of Abbey Road also in this collection.
