This song was mixed using a vintage 32 channel analog mixing board that was not equipped with modern automation features that would normally control necessary changes in volume, panning and special effects (echoes, reverberation, equalization, and other enhancements) that are commonly used during the final mixing process.
So George and Laurie both manned the board’s faders (volume controls) to perform these functions manually. Even George's wife provided a few extra "fader fingers" at one point. They spent hours and hours, mix after mix, trying to get it just right. They finally arrived at a mix that covered everything and sounded exactly as planned.
Then George discovered that he had forgotten to activate the fader that provided the harmony track for the instrumental fill in the first verse. There was no way they were going to repeat that entire mix process all over again! In retrospect, it wasn't really needed after all. Enjoy...
