I have always loved the sound of those albums. Do recall any details of how the basics were tracked? In particulal I am interested in the setups for guitars and drums.

Basics all engineered by Peter Bown at Abbey Road 3. (Pete did Piper at Gates of Dawn)
Very dry room. Mics would be 87s, 84s, D20 bass drum and maybe AKG D190 or D1200 on some thing. No Shure mics at Abbey Road when I worked there. Guitar would have been 87s 0r 67s and vocals the then new FET 47. It was all recorded on 8 track 3M one inch EMI tape and transfered to Studer 16 trackl at AIR. Mixed by Robin Black at Morgan so would have made some changes.
Cheers JL
