About

I thought it was going to be this quick album. That it was going to be three weeks at Park Gate [in Sussex] and then two weeks at AIR London mixing. But it just went on and on, and then Montserrat came into it, and we were just constantly recording stuff. Of course, in Paul’s situation, he could call anyone or go anywhere. It just grew and grew and grew, and we had all these tracks, and there was obviously the stuff in Montserrat, but it wasn’t done like Tug of War first and then Pipes of Peace. All these tracks came together.

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
