In a recent concert given at Abbey Road Studios, Paul explained how the group circumvented the limitations of the four-track recording of the day: "What we used to do is take those three tracks and then bounce those down, combine those, to the fourth track so then you'd have all of that just on one track. And you'd wipe the other three, suddenly giving yourself more than four tracks, which is how you could do things like Sgt. Pepper, bouncing down all the time. Actually it gave the guitars an amazing quality. People would say, 'You're losing quality.' We liked this loss in quality. It made everything go all so shiny and ZZZEWWW."
