Default The (piccolo) trumpet part on "Penny Lane"

Thanks for passing this along - one of the truly bright musical highlights of those St Peppers recording sessions.

Wonderful to know and hear about this. I love these snippets of Beatles lore. I have a buddy who does as well, so I’ve passed this along. Thanks for sharing.

"George Lennon." Haha!


"Penny Lane" might be my favorite Beatles song. This is really interesting, thanks for posting.

I also like John Wilbraham's tasteful, understated piccolo trumpet on 1967's "Constant Penelope" (from the lp "Circus") by The Gentle Power Of Song; lead guitar work by super session man Big Jim Sullivan, of course; along with David Mason (he who provided the "Penny Lane" piccolo trumpet solo), Elgar Howarth, and Roy Copestake, Wilbraham also played trumpet on the title track for "Magical Mystery Tour."
