"Don't Pass Me By" Alternate Commercial Mix

Although there are no real outtakes available for the Ringo song from the "White Album", "Don't Pass Me By" has seen a different mix released on the commercially available Apple 3-LP/2-CD "Anthology 3" project as well as a short snippet of dialogue and a few seconds of music on the Anthology DVD.
The snippet consists of the finality of take 3 with cymbals crashes from Ringo while Paul plays some piano. The dialogue that follows this is basically Paul saying "I Think that's got it!" while Ringo says "I think we've got something there, George" (probably referring to George Martin). The piano was treated to some generous leslie speaker manipulation.
The available mix from the LP/CD uses a vocal overdub from Ringo onto take 5 but uses the original take 3 backing of Paul's piano, drums and overdubbed percussion. All this is in glorious stereo. Some extra vocal lines are intact on the mix; some of which would be removed on the "White Album" mix including some spoken word.
