Notes

'Sessions III' lists Gentle On My Mind as having Backup Vocals overdubbed on January 23, but the session log shows that as of February 4 (Date of the Job Number) no backup vocals had been overdubbed.

'Sessions III' lists My Little Friend as having Backup Vocals overdubbed on January 23, but the session log shows that as of February 4 (Date of the Job Number) no backup vocals had been overdubbed.

'Sessions III' lists Without Love having Backup Vocals overdubbed on January 23, but the session log shows that as of February 5 (Date of the Job Number) no backup vocals had been overdubbed. The only other overdub session where Without Love is listed as having backup vocals overdubbed is on the evening of May 7 where Brass was also overdubbed.

There is a page missing from the session logs between March 25 and May 5 1969, and as there appears to have been no backup vocals overdubbed to any songs in May (Apart from May 6 & 7 where Brass was also overdubbed) it is safe to assume that it is from March. The date of the job number at the bottom of the March 25 overdub session log is March 28, so it would be safe to assume that this missing overdub session would be before March 28. The March 25 overdub session was for "Strings" and "Backup Vocals" and was held from 2.00pm until 5.00pm but it may well be that another session was held in the evening of March 25 but just for the backup vocalists (Sonja Montgomery, Millie Kirkham, Dolores Edgin, Hurshell Wigington and Joe Babcock).

'Sessions III' does not list You'll Think Of Me as having Backup Vocal overdubs done between January 22 and January 24, but the session log shows that as of February 4 (Date of the Job Number) backup vocals had been overdubbed, indicating that backup vocals were overdubbed between January 22 and 24.

'Sessions III' does not list I'll Be There as having Backup Vocal overdubs done between January 22 and January 24, but the session log shows that as of February 5 (Date of the Job Number) backup vocals had been overdubbed, indicating that backup vocals were overdubbed between January 22 and 24.

'Sessions III' lists that Suspicious Minds had Backup Vocal overdubs done on January 22, but surely this cannot be the case as the song wasn't recorded until the early hours of January 23!
