Lennon wanted his voice double tracked a lot, or flanged, phased, or put through a leslie unit (used on organs)...even the technical team at EMI came up with an artificial "double tracking" (ADT) that Lennon loved, he'd sing it once and tell the control room to "Track-it"!...Gary had his voice double-tracked most of the time, just to "heft" it up.........John
Really enjoyed this one BeatleJ, as I bought most of their better-known output when they charted. Never seen/heard this one though. I see it peaked @ #39 on Billboard. Had I been Snuffy (it was him, wasn't it?) I'd have felt the flip was stronger in melody and with a crisper and more forward sound, and made that the 'A'. Very 'Yellow Balloon', too. But I've always been a sucker for double-tracking. It somehow sweetens the overall feel. I once read John Lennon insisted on being double-tracked - is that true? (Certainly, IMO, 'Woman' would not sound as appealing single-tracked).
