From the Anthology 2 liner notes:
“Do you want us to do it again, George?” mocked Paul to the Beatles’ producer at the star of this recording. Your Mother Should Know had already been on the blocks for a month, initial sessions taking place at a different venue – Chappell Studios, just off New Bond Street in Central London – on 22 and 23 August (the last time that the Beatles saw their manager Brian Epstein, who died on the 27th). Now Paul was embarking on a new arrangement, with snare drum, harmonium, jangle piano and vocal.
The Beatles recorded eleven such takes of Your Mother Should Know during this 16th September session, the one featured here, Take 27, being marked “best”, albeit only temporarily.
