I heard another 'aaah' in the background at '2:53' but very faint...

I emailed Mike of the "What Goes On" website - http://www.pootle.demon.co.uk/wgo.htm - and he has now entered the debate too! Here is his reply:

'Another "Who sang SLYYYY" brewing? :)

The opening section of "Ah's" to 2:53, has qualities of Paul's voice, but
not beyond that point. The ragged ending at 3:12 is more John's style.

From a recording point of view, the quality of the voice and effects matches
John's from the rest of the recording (huge delay and echo, being panned
around, thin and harsh) -- contrast against Paul's fairly dry, close mic'd,
bass present voice.

Also, Lewisohn's _Recording Sessions_ states that Paul's bit began at "Woke
up" and ended on "everybody spoke and I went into a dream .... oh sh*t" --
which was later replaced with a take *without* the vocal error and expletive.

I'd go with it being John ... there is a background vocal also around 3:03
to 3:10 singing "oo-ooo" over John's vocal, I think that might be Paul. Just
to add confusion.

Mike.'

Well done T.E.
First you asked a pretty good source and then you gave us his reply.
And it seems a pretty sensible reply to me!

This has been a great debate actually! However, I do disagree with Mike and hold firm to MY belief that it is Paul - but you'll notice that didn't stop me posting HIS view. :D

I'd say so.

It was John.
And Paul 'ooooo'd there a bit.
John did the 'aaaah's.

I always thought it was John, it just never occured to me to be paul.
After hearing it, it could well be! I mean he does ahhhhh's on Lovely Rita, which share some of the same wealth. I feel ashamed that such a debate did not enter my own head :)

I think this debate has been much ado about nothing.

Some people got onto a bandwagon. Some people (ahem!) had a fight with the originator of the debate.

But in the end, it was still Our John!
