Yeah, H. Bowen David was known as "Bo" by friends and family. I actually emailed back and forth with his daughter many years ago, and she sent me a scan of a Western Recorders newsletter with a photo of him. Bo was still living at the time (I don't know if he is now or not), but his daughter said he was losing his eyesight. She told him I had inquired about him, and said it made him happy to know people were interested in the work he'd done, and still listening to those records.

That's great.  Not many photos of him around.  I hope he's either still with us, or resting in peace.

Er, I made a mistake - should have referred to him as Bo David, not Bo Henry. But "Bo" is his nickname of choice.  Smiley

I figured! 

And interesting that, in any case-- but especially if the scenario of preparing bunch of mono track mixes at Western that Sunday night holds water -- We can't forget that it wasn't always Chuck engineering Brian's sessions at Western.

I think I've found a good example of a most famous master recorded on a partially erased tape. The Doors, "Light My Fire". At the very start, roughly 5 seconds in, a female voice says something like "appeasingly". It's heard most clearly in the single mono mix, and (less so) in the mono mix. Stereo mix has it as well, but it's really subtle there. This means, it's on the 4-track master. Though it was the mono mix that was paid the most attention by Paul Rothchild and Bruce Botnick, they weren't able to do much in mono.

There is also unique stereo remix from the 4-track master made by Steve Hoffman, on the Audio Fidelity 2014 release "Legends / Get It On". This subliminal thing is still there, but oh-so-subtly. (Haven't checked yet the "Perception" remix by Bruce Botnick, as I am aware that some subtle noises are cleaned there.)

We know now it isn't Carol, as she recognised the fact herself  Grin

Here's a little snippet I put together.
Basically you have the reduced mono backing track of IJWMFTT on the left channel and the corresponding part of the Everly Brother's Power of Love on the right channel.
It seems like only the track with the bass guitar and Hammond organ remained on the tape, whatever clue that holds.
Anyway, this pretty much proves that the weird noise is in fact part of the organ solo.
