The Beatles Isolated Vocal Track: Fixing A Hole

Next up in my isolated track series is another classic Beatles number, Fixing A Hole, released on the 1967 masterpiece Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Written by Paul, he takes the lead vocal duties and John & George supply backing vocals. Take a listen:

What’s fantastic about hearing this isolated vocal take from Paul is the imperfections in his voice when he hits those high notes. A clear example of this is at the end of the second verse where he’s singing “where it will go” and you can hear his voice crack a little bit on the “go”. Superb. A lot of people would see this as a bad thing but for me personally it adds to the magic of this song, especially because you can’t actually hear it in the full song with every instrument present.

Isolated vocal tracks from the Sgt. Pepper album are probably some of the best you’ll hear. Everyone knows how good the music is on that album but strip that away and you’re left with equally excellent vocals.
