For this first day of recording at AIR Studios London in March 1981, Paul McCartney recorded an instrumental track which has remained unreleased. A monitor mix of it has leaked online in 2010, as part of a huge leak of 65 tracks likely coming from the Trevor Jones collection.

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
