The backing track of “Oh! Darling” had been recorded on April 20, 1969, and overdubs had been added on April 26. On this day, from 2:30 pm to 7 pm, three attempts at creating a stereo mix for this track were made.

Those mixes would remain unused, as Paul McCartney would re-record his lead vocals a number of times in July 1969.

If we like to think, in all modesty, that the Paul McCartney Project is the best online ressource for everything Paul McCartney, The Beatles Bible is for sure the definitive online site focused on the Beatles. There are obviously some overlap in terms of content between the two sites, but also some major differences in terms of approach.
