Yes and don't forget the drum overdubs in late August.  Keith recorded
overdubs on the Shepperton and Boston '68 (it was silent footage) clips.
This was his last studio recording.

The multiangle uses the same take 1 to take 2 splice. The difference from
the film is the synth, drum break and slide are live (likely take 1).  Note
the drum break isn't as sharp(but it does match!), and there are no fancy
laser effects that are in the film.  The reason I think the splice from take
1 and 2 is just after the slide there are a few seconds of damaged film
which make for a natural place to edit and John A. hints that is the spot.
It would have been anti-climatic to use the take 1 ending and everyone is
used to the film version.
