I'm doing some research into people who played on Beatles albums/singles.

Anyone got any good recommendations for articles/info on this (beyond Wikipedia)

Also anyone know the total number of people who did play with them (I know there were some uncredited).  I think only 5 people were credited - George Martin, Alan Civil and Billy Preston are three I know, who were the other two.

Many thanks

Hello, @ken1921.

You are on a great site for Beatles research. Go elsewhere on here and you will find hundreds of bazillions of articles on The Beatles. All written by the one true owner of this forum. 

As for who was credited on the albums at the time; Mal Evans gets a nod (’You Won’t See Me’) as does Anil Bhagwat (’Love You Too’). There are a ton of others who played with and on Beatles records but most weren’t named on the albums. 

The following people thank meanmistermustard for this post:
