@fast-city-line I agree that it is George doing the slow countdown and I think it’s Paul doing the fast one and he yells “Go!” The cough could be Paul too.
As far as the Aaaahhs in A Day In The Life I’m torn between John & Paul on that. Would have to listen again with earphones.
I just listened to it myself with my high-powered headphones. Aside from a few other details I picked up that interest me, I paid keen attention to that portion, but also to John's singing elsewhere as I think it's relevant because he does a couple of things with his voice that go up high like with "Albert Hall", and you can detect the Lennon twang in those, as one does in the "Ahhhs". So to me, if Paul did it, and he certainly is capable of doing that, he purposefully tried to sound like John, because it clearly sounds like John with that nasal twang and thin quality. I don't know why Paul would try to sound like John, particularly as he's not sounding like John during his little portion right before. Also I have heard isolated tracks of the "Ahhhs" and it sounds to me like whoever did it tracked over more than once maybe two or three times to get an effect of two (or more) voices merging down one note into a half step below it simultaneously so to speak. Those isolated "Ahhhs" sound to me even more like John.
I tend to lean toward it being John as well. So busy today didn’t have time to listen! Tomorrow I just have to do my taxes (super easy this year!) so will pop the CD in my blu-ray player and listen with earbuds plugged into TV!
