In the classic analogue tape based recording world overdubbing means: 
record a second track, with the same instrument. Analogue tapes never 
were able to record on the same track twice without deleting  the first 
take. (ok, in 1974 when I was a highschool boy I glued aluminium foil on 
the erase head of my cassette recorder and made overdubbing that way, 
but this is another story...)
