Lennon, McCartney and Martin monitor the playback of the recording while, in the background, tape operator John Smith commands the J37 4-track machine. Lennon is adding chamber echo to track 3, McCartney is controlling the volume of track 3, while Martin is controlling master volume of output 1 (the output usually employed for mono mixing).

  3. Thank you! Up to now I thought Paul was correction John, but he is in fact helping him (no automation back then of course). And yes, now I also see the hand of George Martin, this is actually a very cool photo!
