Spread the love! If you like what you are seeing, share it on social networks and let others know about The Paul McCartney Project.
Paul recorded two versions of his hit song “Ebony & Ivory” – the duet with Stevie Wonder and a solo version.
Now with Paul being Paul he also decided to make a promo video for the solo version of the song, so on this day at London’s Elstree Studios he filmed this second promo for his song. Strangely this lovely promo remains commercially unavailable and unbelievably wasnt included in its deluxe release.
The other “Ebony & Ivory” video, directed by Barry Myers, sets its theme in a prison atmosphere. Cutting back and forth between the image of Paul singing the song and the prison scenes, it shows how the tension between a gaoler and one of the prisoners is resolved by “freedom” through the the prisoner’s gaining his medium of the song. Beautifully photographed, it includes a prison yard scene which was shot at the old Royal Mint in London.From Club Sandwich N°26, 1982

The Beatles Diary Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001
"An updated edition of the best-seller. The story of what happened to the band members, their families and friends after the 1970 break-up is brought right up to date. A fascinating and meticulous piece of Beatles scholarship."
We owe a lot to Keith Badman for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles after the break-up and how their stories intertwined together!
