From Anthology 2 liner notes:

The Beatles spent nine hours on 24 October working on I’m Looking Through You, perfecting a rhythm track and then overdubbing lead and harmony vocals on to this new Paul McCartney composition. For two weeks the result was considered to be the master, until a remake was started on 6 November (and another one followed on the 10th) that added the two “Why, tell me why” choruses and caused the fine first version to remain unissued.
