Beatles and Click?

Hey Ken,

Do you know what that 'tap tap' sound is at the start of the
Sgt. Pepper Reprise..?... before the drums come in..?
It's on time and the tempo is matched to the track.

Is it a metronome of some sort..., a primitive click?

Ringo sure has good time , did he ever need anything like this?

Hi Norman, I'm afraid I can't tell you anything about Sgt Pepper, I was mastering when it was recorded brilliantly by Geoff Emerick.

As far as Ringo using a click, I never saw him use one on all the sessions I worked on and there were a lot in one capacity or another.
