About

In August 1980, Paul McCartney recorded a set of demos to be considered for the upcoming sessions for a new session (the one to become “Tug Of War“). There were some strong tracks in it, which would indeed end up on “Tug Of War“, or the next album, “Pipes Of Peace“. There were also some weak ones, which would remain unreleased.

Eight Arms To Hold You • Chip Madinger • Mark Easter

We owe a lot to Chip Madinger and Mark Easter for the creation of those session pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details!

Eight Arms To Hold You: The Solo Beatles Compendium is the ultimate look at the careers of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr beyond the Beatles. Every aspect of their professional careers as solo artists is explored, from recording sessions, record releases and tours, to television, film and music videos, including everything in between. From their early film soundtrack work to the officially released retrospectives, all solo efforts by the four men are exhaustively examined. Not only are John, Paul, George and Ringo's official projects
