Chamber Reverb
A glorious example of chamber reverb from EMI Studios at Abbey Road is found at the end of the second verse after the line, "...and in the middle of investigation, I break down." That word 'down' gets an extra kick of chamber reverb -- a manual mix move, no doubt -- which is nicely revealed in the space before the B section kicks in with "Outta college, money spent, ..."

Double Tracking
From single-track vocals to double- and triple-tracked vocals and harmonies. A good case study. Single vocal until the layering begins, right on the words, “funny paper.”
