I went to Portobello Road, where they have a big flea market, and I bought this beautiful old Besson cornet. It came in a beat up old leather bag and it was really screwed up. And I said, ‘How much do you want for that?’ And I gave him a couple of pounds, and went home and had it worked on a little bit, so that it played okay. I brought it to the session one day, and now it’s on Single Pigeon.

Eight Arms to Hold You: The Solo Beatles Compendium

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.
