Sunshine Sometime” was intended to be part of the soundtrack of an upcoming animated film about the cartoon character “Rupert The Bear“, but remained unreleased till 2012.

I kind of remember using some African drums an clicking on the rims with a wooden stick… we built that track as we went, but basic was done with everyone playing at the same time and then a few overdubs to complete it.Denny Seiwell,

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.
