In this session from 7 pm to 6 am, The three Beatles recorded overdubs onto the basic track recorded the day before. Paul McCartney recorded his bass guitar part along with John Lennon on tambourine, and John recorded his lead vocals, manually double-tracking them afterwards.
In the studio during this session, there was Mal Evans, Paul’s cousin John McCartney and newly signed Apple artist Jackie Lomax. They were invited to join the Beatles to record backing vocals and handclaps. Mal Evans also contributed some tambourine shaking. Although left out of the final mix, the song ended with deliberate applause created by all those participants.
The Beatles continued working on “Dear Prudence” at Trident, the day after, on August 30, 1968.

And an introductory interview with Paul McCartney!
The Beatles Bible
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.
