not the horn in for noone???EQCi6ASHVUM
, I forgot about that wonderful French horn solo by Alan Civil. Yes, it would rank up there with David Mason's piccolo trumpet solo.
This, from Wikipedia:
The French-horn solo was by Alan Civil, a British horn player. Prior to the session, Civil thought he was playing for a classical album, mistaking the words "For No One" on a lead sheet as "For No. One", an abbreviation for "Symphony Number One". During the session, McCartney pushed Civil to play a note that was beyond the usual range of the instrument (pitched on an F horn, it is a Super-D sharp, that is, an octave above the standard 'high D#'). The result was the "performance of his life," high praise for someone who was known as the best French horn player in London at the time.
