About

About this 12″:

‘Take It Away’ is a great package, with snaps on the back of Paul with Linda, Eric Stewart, Steve Gadd, Ringo and an apprehensive-looking George Martin. ‘I’ll Give You A Ring’ (non-LP) is revealed as being another ‘all-me-own-work’ job instrumentally, except for Tony Coe’s clarinet. ‘Dress Me Up As A Robber’ is the bonus track.

From Club Sandwich N°36, 1985
