I need to have those "unknown musicians" identified. There are four of them.

well i can't find it..this is from ML "Recording Sessions" book...

The recording of `Within You Without You ' was done as
one song but was referred to in three parts for easy
indentification. The basic track of take one — including
parts one, two and three — was taped on this day, lasting
6'25" and featuring an Indian friend (his name regrettably
unknown) on tabla and other session men contributing
swordmandel, dilruba [a sitar like instrument but played
with a bowl and a tamboura. This latter instrument was
also played by George and by Beatles assistant Neil
Aspinall. The outside musicians were from the Asian
Music Circle in Fitzalan Road, Finchley, north London.


no names given in his book.

There is documented info of three of the four names. Remember to list everyone and what they played to get the two points.

Walrus59 has all the names but the "unknown musicians" on Indian instruments. Lewisohn gives those names, you just have to know where to look.

Does Lewisohn give their names in The Complete Beatles Recording sessions? I looked through that book and the only reference made was 'featuring an Indian friend (his name regrettably unknown) on tabla and other session men contributing swordmandel, dilruba [a sitar like instrument but played with a bowl and a tamboura.' but no names are given. Could you give us a hint to where we should be looking?

Check The Complete Beatles Chronicle. You'll find all but one musician's name.

You can only get the two points by giving the entire answer. Since all names are now listed, the first to post all the names and their contributions will get the points.

This is everyone's last chance to claim two easy points here. Like I said before, all the names are listed - just not in one post.

Exclamation

For the last week no one posted the correct answer here and now it's time to close this question. The two points will fade away for another time.
