About

From the liner notes:

As for One Hand Clapping, this is the first time I’m putting out an album that never was, so I had to pick
what was relevant. This set is pretty much my own remastered version of the original Yellow Cat CD,
with whatever tracks that were officially released substituted in. I’ve also added a “complete” version of
Baby Face, with the intro part (which was cut off on the official Venus And Mars Archive) reinstated. For a
long while that’s how I was going to put it out and then at the last minute, I decided to include the
complete Piano Tape (remastered this time by the good folks at RMW!) as it seemed like a good idea
because a) I did want to include this material on some release, and b) it wasn’t strong enough to warrant
a release by itself. So here it is – an hour of Macca at the piano, banging out his then unreleased catalog,
circa the summer of 1974.

Since no artwork existed for this set, I came up with what you see here, utilizing the illustration that was
made by David R. L. Litchfield – the man who filmed the documentary. As it’s the only real “cover art” I
had to go with, it made sense to use it on the front cover! The rest was taken up with photos of the era.
And for the CD labels, I tried to re-create the classic orange Capitol label that was being used at the
time. It is what it is! Anyhoo, I hope y’all enjoy these. They were fun working on (especially McGear), and
thanks again for all your support / assistance / encouragement!

NOTES:
CD 1
Paul McCartney on ‘’One Hand Clapping’: ‘It was made by a friend of mine, David Litchfield; he produced
a little magazine that was funky (Ritz, co-edited with David Bailey). We decided that he would shoot a
very simple piece, on video. We would just go into Abbey Road and play basically what we had
rehearsed. So we went in there and it was very simply filmed, absolute basic stuff, and I think its charm
now is that there’s no pretence. It is what it is. We just called it ‘One Hand Clapping’, for absolutely no
reason.”

After the six-week stay in Nashville, Paul was happy with the new lineup of Wings: Linda, Denny Laine,
Jimmy McCulloch and Geoff Britton. Over four days in August 1974 they gathered at EMI’s Studio Two to
rehearse for a possible tour and record old and new material.
Wings was joined for these sessions by the orchestral arranger/conductor Del Newman, and the
Liverpool saxophone player Howie Casey.

David Litchfield, videotaped the events for MPL, with the intent of producing a Television special, to
follow up the previous year’s James Paul McCartney. Inspired by Frank Zappa’s film 200 Motels, the idea
was to shoot on videotape and then edit and transfer the selected footage onto film. Almost forty hours
of videotape shot. En plus, Geoff Emerick made proper recordings.

During these sessions, or shortly thereafter, Paul was filmed in the backyard of the studio for some
acoustic footage. This was dubbed The Backyard Tape.
See Venus And Mars – Ultimate Archive Collections, cd 2, tracks 11-21, plus 23.
On September 9, 1974, Geoff cut a 6-track acetate in Abbey Road Studio from the sessions, for a
possible Wings Live In The Studio-EP.
The tracklist:
Side A: ‘Jet’, ‘Let Me Roll It’, ‘Junior’s Farm’
Side B: ‘My Love’, ‘Little Woman Love/C Moon/Little Woman Love’, ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’.
Needless to say, the record never materialized.
When the tour didn’t happen, the TV show was scrapped. Especially since the drummer, Geoff Britton,
left the band some months later. For years it appeared that the documentary would rest in the archives
forever.
In November 2010 however, the complete 51-minute One Hand Clapping was available on DVD as part
of the Deluxe-Version of the third remaster of Band on the Run.
As there’s much talk-over, it was a good idea to add some clean versions of the material on a bonus
disc, augmented two tracks recorded but not used in the documentary: ‘Country Dreamer’ and ‘Let Me
Roll It’.
1 – One Hand Clapping – 1:29
2 – Jet – 4:02 – from Band on the Run – Deluxe Version (2010)
3 – Soily – 4:11
4 – Little Woman Love/C Moon – 5:40
5 – Let Me Roll It – from Band on the Run –Deluxe Version
6 – Junior’s Farm – 4:44
7 – Wild Life – 0:29
8 – Hi Hi Hi – 2:49
9 – Go Now – 3:58
10 – Maybe I’m Amazed – 5:24
11 – Bluebird – 3:53
12 – Junior’s Farm – 4:29
13 – Jet – 4:01
14 – Soily – 4:09
15 – My Love – 4:32
16 – Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five – 6:25 – from Band on the Run –Deluxe Version
17 – Live and Let Die – 3:32
18 – Band on the Run – 5:5 – from Band on the Run –Deluxe Version
19 – Blue Moon of Kentucky – 3:01
20 – Baby Face – 1:57

CD 2
Dubbed The Piano Tape by bootleggers, this hour long tape is recorded at a unknown date. Some
experts think it could be as early as June 1973, while others think as late as 1976.
In Eight Arms To Hold You, Chip Madinger and Mark Easter think it could have been recorded in Los
Angeles, while Paul was visiting John there. That would be in late April 1974. Of course a lot of these
songs would be recorded by Wings in the months and years to come.
