About

From Facebook, May 19, 2021:

[…] A reduction mix, created on 16 May, had freed up two spare tracks on the four-track tape. Bass guitar and tambourine were added onto the first of these, and the second featured two passages recorded by Civil. Alan Civil was the principal horn player in the Philharmonia Orchestra and paid a session fee of 50 guineas (£52.50) and given a credit on the sleeve of ‘Revolver’, leading to more work and greater recognition for his playing.
