Hi again all.  Now that I am close to completing my solo Beatle CD collection I am wondering if there are any albums out there that have a significant presence from one or more of the lads?  So far I have found:

  • Nilsson - Pussy Cats (I had this on LP so it was the first one I looked for on CD)
  • Carl Perkins and Friends - Blue Suede Shoes . A Rockabilly Session (I only found this while looking for Rotogravure on iTunes)

I'm wondering if there are any more in a similar vein I may have missed in the last 30 years? :)

Damn, this thread died an unwarranted early death...wish I had something to contribute to it. :(

I've always been curious about that Splinter album "The Place I Love" to which George contributed so heavily. Unfortunately it's never been reissued on CD.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I don't think we have a thread for this yet--could be wrong. As I read interviews and books I'm always coming across stories about how this or that Beatle contributed a song, sang backup or played guitar or drums on a friend's record. Are there any websites or master lists that give all these credits and the album names?

trcanberra started this discussion last year, but there are only 2 posts in it...

http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....-presence/

If either of the other 2 Mods care to move this thread into it, go ahead. Hardly seems worth the effort to me.

Yeah i merged the threads. The idea of two threads on the same topic not together would give me sleepless nights.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

There is a book by Kristofer Engelhardt called 'Beatles Deeper Undercover' of which the amazon descriptor reads 

Focusing exclusively on more than 1,000 musical endeavors shared between more than 300 artists, this updated continuation of the critically acclaimed Beatles Undercover contains new chapters, previously unpublished interviews, and exclusive firsthand information on the Fab Four from the artists who knew them best. An exhaustively researched, highly detailed discography of the Beatles’ musical contributions is also included, giving a clear look into their songwriting and recording processes. Many of the Beatles' contributions to other artists' recordings were done anonymously and are documented here for the first time, making this an extremely valuable book for any Beatles fan.

The other thread still exists, and my post is now the only one on it. (Lonely! :( )

EDIT: Ah, there it is. Thank you!

I will fix it for 'ya.

EDIT: Done. Moving multiple posts is trickier than you think it would be. I don't know HOW MANY times I've meant to move multiple posts and ended up moving one one post or half a thread. I've been lucky so far that I caught my goofs before too many of you saw them.

And then it takes double long to get the other posts moved because you are muttering at yourself for making the mistake and causing yourself double work.

I wonder if the list in Beatles Deeper Undercover is the same as the one in Beatles Undercover with more added to it, or if the sequel has a new list that picks up where the first one left off.

George has done a lot of work under pseudonyms, like L'Angelo Mysterioso, Hari Georgeson (how obvious) and others. This is a website which mentions his work with others:
