About

A week after traveling back from Montserrat, Paul McCartney and George Martin were back in the studio, in London. Denny Laine didn’t participate to those sessions, and would announce a month later that he left Wings.

A new collaborator joined those sessions, ex-10cc member Eric Stewart.

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

As the paperback version is out of print, you can buy a PDF version on the authors' website
