In mid-December 1969, Paul McCartney and his family (Linda, Heather, and Mary) spent some time off on the island of Antigua, in the Caribbean Sea.

One of the photos taken by Linda during those holidays was used as the cover of Paul’s first solo album, “McCartney“, released in April 1970. Some other photos from those holidays also appeared in the inner sleeve, as well as photos from some previous holidays in Corfu.

How’s Paul?

I haven’t seen him for months. He’s been on holidays. He’s in the Bahamas at the moment.
