Despite that quote saying 'most' its possible it was still recorded in one take. Edit =/= punch in.
While that is technically true, it is unlikely based on all the information we have. And not to mention calling that a "one take" (if it was) is very misleading.
Also there's no source for this "one take" blurb anyways.
