Beatle My Guest – Part 2: The ’80s and Beyond

Part 2 of 2, where we detail the appearance of Beatles on each other’s solo albums, post break-up.  Part 1 here.  At the very end of the article, there’s a Spotify playlist of every relevant track from 1970 onwards.  Some tracks are not available on Spotify, so the playlist is incomplete.

NB: We’ve purposefully omitted the 1994 reunion between McCartney, Harrison and Starr, as that was issued under the Beatles name
