"Blue Jay Way" - Overdubs and Mixes

And so it was that on October 06 1967 it was decided to have a cello fill the fourth track of the George Harrison composition "Blue Jay Way". Alas, there is no sign of who exactly played the cello on the track.
Mixing for the song began on November 07 1967 and there was no issues with the mono mix - with 27 attempts and an edit ! It was also decided that there was something to be added to the song so a separate reel of the song being played backwards was faded up in between vocal lines but this appears only in the stereo mix of the song - only 12 attempts - giving it a very eerie atmosphere.
