From Lot 99 – PAUL McCARTNEY & WINGS – ONE HAND CLAPPING – (omegaauctions.co.uk) – PAUL McCARTNEY & WINGS – ONE HAND CLAPPING – ORIGINAL EMI STUDIOS LP ACETATE RECORDINGS. Unbelievable piece of Paul McCartney & Wings history with this set of 4 x single sided EMI Studios acetate LP recordings of the One Hand Clapping sessions. The tracks contained on each record are: ‘From Reel A’: One Hand Clapping, Jet, Soiley, Little Woman Love/’C. Moo’ and Let Me Roll It, ‘From Reel B’: Junior’s Farm, Hi-Hi-Hi, Go Now, Maybe I’m Amazed and Bluebird, ‘From Reel C’: Blue Moon Of Kentucky, My Love, Nineteen Eighty Five, Live And Let Die and Band On The Run and ‘Untitled’: Junior’s Farm, Jet and Soiley (sic. Soily). Record ‘1’ is in VG condition with some surface/storage marks though no heavier scratches, handwritten timing of 21’00 and ‘Reel A Wings’. Record ‘2’ is in glossy VG+ condition with some light hairline marks, nothing heavier. Handwritten timing of 21’04 and ‘Reel B Wings’. Record ‘3’ is in similar VG+ condition – again nice and glossy with a few light hairline marks. Handwritten timing of 22’14 and ‘Reel C Wings’. Record ‘4’ is in similar VG+ condition with a few light hairline marks, nothing ever heavier in nature. No timing indicated but handwritten ‘Juniors Farm, Just, Soily, Wings’. A series of EPs were planned to be released in conjunction with the film (directed by Dave Lichfield) with the aim of capturing the band playing live in informal recording sessions. The band went into Abbey Road studios on Sunday 25th August 1974 and over the next few days they recorded the tracks which made up the final recording. The filming took place in studio 2 but the repeat recordings were done in studio1. Geoff Britton has been in touch with the director of the film who stated he wasn’t given any copies of the acetates leading us to believe that only these and Paul McCartney’s copies are in existence. Accompanying the lot are 2 printed photos of Wings and their road crew/management at Abbey Road studios on Sunday 25th August enjoying a Chinese takeaway, which are signed by Geoff Britton. These live recordings have never been officially commercially released with these original versions unheard.

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
