"A Day In The Life" - Take 1
However, on this day, the first take consisted of John performing his vocal and playing acoustic guitar, Paul on the piano, George on the Maraca and Ringo on the bongos although there are photos of John at the piano and Paul at the organ. At the beginning of the take before the count-in you can hear an organ chord being played.
The take can be heard with John counting in the song as "sugar plum fairy, sugar plum fairy" mumbled twice. This version is not very long and I can't find it on "youtube" to give you a sample, but it can be found on the bootleg LP "Arrive Without Travelling" and on bootleg CD as "Arrive Without Aging".
