...would it be a "Beatles track"? I'm of the very firm belief that they all decided to intentionally keep Paul off the recording of this song to keep the fans salivating; the excuse was used that he couldn't be on it because he wasn't allowed in the country. True though that may be, the tape could have easily been mailed to Paul who could have overdubbed his bass part and sent it back (which is what was basically done with his and Linda's vocals on Six O'clock and his "kazoo" contribution for You're Sixteen). So if this had been done, would this be a Beatle song? Furthermore, would it be any more or less of a Beatle song than Real Love or FAAB?
