About

[…] Paul McCartney has produced the latest single by the Fourmost. […] The Fourmost revive the old jazz classic “Rosetta” for their next CBS single. It comes out on February 21, and was produced by Beatle Paul McCartney.

From New Musical Express, February 8, 1969
From New Musical Express, February 8, 1969

Not too many weeks ago Paul took up with a new girlfriend, Rosetta. You might say she was a very old flame, for Rosetta is the title of an old jazz standard which Paul “re-discovered” and felt would be just right for the Liverpudlian group The Fourmost. He called Fourmost leader Brian O’Hara with the suggestion that Rosetta be considered for the group’s new single on CBS.

This led to Paul not only attending The Fourmost session but producing the finished single which was released on February 21. That’s not really the end of the McCartney involvement because Paul’s Scaffolder brother Mike has been taking a personal interest in the plugging of the disc, taking copies to deejay mates and telling them how highly he thinks of The Fourmost and their new 1969 chances of hitting the Top 20 jackpot with Rosetta!
