On October 2 it was time to get going on “Hello, Goodbye”. Work on this recording was spread over quite a few weeks because all the four boys were busy editing and doing other jobs connected with the “Magical Mystery Tour” film. You already know that Paul is the lead singer on “Hello, Goodbye” with George joining him and John to supply the answering voices. Those spiky, metallic guitar chords are played by John and George. Session men added the sound of two violas. Paul is on the piano and extra percussion rhythm instruments like bongos and conga drums were brought in towards the end for the Maori finale! Incidentally, sessions were delayed a couple of days in October when Paul got a swollen face caused by a hole in one of his teeth. But he’s O.K. now!Mal Evans – From the Beatles Monthly Book, N°54, January 1968
