In conversation with Julia, Paul talks warmly about the early years, from his relationship with John and their first meeting at the Woolton Village Fete, to the early days of The Beatles. Recalling fond memories of friends, family and neighbours, this is a genuinely unique piece of Beatle history.That is on the back of the cd. as a promotion. Let me tell you how this conversation came to be.
I made the recording of Paul and I talking back in 1987. We sat in his office, on the top floor of M.P.L. in Soho Square in London, eating sweets that I had brought with me from Liverpool..Everton Mints! I have to say here that that has no bearing on the football team that I support!
Although Paul’s staff kept coming in to say he was late, later and later than late, we just kept on talking. When we finally wore out the tapes, we left. Paul is like that.
I went to meet my cousin, round the corner..and told him what I had been doing. I went to show him the tapes. I turned my bag upside down on the seat…no tapes! David and I walked back, slowly, to M.P.L. searching the pavements, half laughing, half crying ( me!). We gave up. I was distraught.
The next day, I went back to Paul’s office, as a last resort…and you can guess the rest…this fab interview had never even left the building!
I have had it put onto cd..and lasered to get the best quality recording…and I have also had as much of me taken out as possible…Paul is great, as you would expect…I was dithering.
The result is Paul at his chattiest, wittiest, relaxed and most informative best, talking about everything from his own childhood, to his early memories of John and our Mother…and just for fun, the history of the Beatles. I still listen to this from time to time. It makes me laugh..it makes me cry. Paul is still the same.
