About

From Wikipedia:

Kinfauns was a bungalow-style house, located at 16 Claremont Drive, Esher, Surrey, England, KT10 9LU, on the Claremont Estate. From 1964 to 1970 it was home of George Harrison, lead guitarist of the Beatles, and was where many of the demo recordings for the White Album were made. […]

Beatles gatherings

Aside from Paul McCartney’s house at 7 Cavendish Avenue in St John’s Wood, Kinfauns was probably the home the Beatles gathered at most, as it was only a short drive from the homes of John Lennon (Kenwood) and Ringo Starr (Sunny Heights). It was where Harrison, Lennon and their wives retreated during their first LSD experience in 1965, and in May 1968 it was where many of the demo recordings for the White Album were made, on Harrison’s Ampex four-track reel-to-reel tape recorder. (These demos have been released on various bootleg albums; seven of them also appear on The Beatles Anthology, Vol. 3.)

Harrison was the first Beatle to own or use a moog synthesizer, and he recorded “Under The Mersey Wall” with his Moog at Kinfauns; the track became one side of his Electronic Sound album, released in May 1969. […]
