Eddie Klein, in “McCartney II – Archive Collection” book:

[…] Paul decided that the instrumental called “Summer’s Day Song” should have some lyrics and so we added a vocal and harmony vocal at Replica Studio. Replica Studio was installed in the basement of MPL’s office [Paul’s London HQ], so called because it was a replica of Abbey Road’s Number 2 studio even down to a battery operated clock installed into an elarged photo of Number 2 studio as seen through the control room window. Although it was done for a different project it was available as and when required, and so was ideal to continue with further editing. This vocal recording was the only thing I did on the album, and Paul mixed it that same afternoon.
