Official album • Released in 2015

3:52 • Studio versionD • Stereo • 2015 mix - This is a new mix, but it mainly follows the single mix. The stray sound after “for though they may be parted” is absent, but Paul’s sour piano note during the final verse is present. The “oohs” pan from L to R the first time in the single mix, and then they stay at R; in the 2015 mix they appear at L & R and are stationary. There is an overdub right before the bridge that sounds slightly louder here. The guitar overdub comes in during the last verse at center and soft, just like in the single mix; however, the overdub moves to the right, and it sounds like it’s the second overdub now instead of the first; the single mix remains with the first overdub at center.

Anthology 3

Official album • Released in 1996

4:05 • OuttakeC • Stereo • Six days ahead of recording the master of Let It Be, Paul McCartney sat at the piano in Apple's basement studio and promised his three fellow Beatles a version of his new song that would "knock you out", even though he was still to write two of the verses (the ones beginning "And when the night is cloudy" and "I wake up to the song of music"). For effect, two pieces of John Lennon dialogue from that later 31 January session top and tail the piece, the closing discourse ("OK, let's track it. [Sharp intake of breath.] You bounder, you cheat!") emphasising once again the strictly live aspect of these Savile Row sessions: the Beatles were determined not to overdub (or "track") anything... but the temptation was there.
