At the version start of the “Tug Of War” album (and therefore of the “Tug Of War” song), there is the sound of people grunting as part of a real tug of war – a popular sporting event since ancient times. This sound has been recorded on that day, during the National Indoor Tug Of War Championships in Huddersfield, by Eddie Klein, McCartney’s personal sound engineer.

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!

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.
