I don't recall this ever being shared here before so here it is. Feels legit to me.
That sounds like ONLY the drums. With a little bit of everything else leaking in.
On my phone that’s kind of how it sounds. On a desktop the bass is pretty clear.
Unfortunately...you may be right. His bass was kind of weak in the mix sometimes.
It’s legit; I’ve been studying it for over 50 years, played it in a number of bands. The bass sounded upfront on my Iphone, in fact it actually overpowered Ringo a bit. That song was the turning point for McCartney’s sound; the early use of the Rickenbacker bass, and the unique for the time employment of a speaker as a microphone diaphragm/transducer to capture the biggest low frequency sound possible. Paul had complained about how the bass on Motown records had been the centerpiece, and he wanted some of that. One thing he might not have known is that Motown had 8 track, where they were still recording on 4, and bouncing down on occasion. But the end result total mix, whenever I heard it on a jukebox, always sounded great; it was bass in your face, riding on top of the droning guitars.
I can understand the recording limitations in the 60's. But sometimes his bass sound even had problems during the Wings era.
