The first woman to record with the Beatles?

Sheila Bromberg played harp on She’s Leaving Home. She also played sessions at Abbey Road sessions with lots of other pop stars. But was she, as she maintains, the first girl to pluck a Fab Four chord?

We await confirmation from resident Beatleologists.

  • Fabulous stuff. Thanks Norman. At the risk of inspiring a potentially unprecendented stream of vitriol on here, I will mention that I agree with Ned Rorem (who wrote about this on several occasions in the late 1960s) that songs such as “She’s Leaving Home” rank with the songs of Schubert. Yes, I said it. And so did Ned………….Time Magazine 1967 “When discussing Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, composer Ned Rorem described “She’s Leaving Home” as “equal to any song that Schubert ever wrote”
