BEATLE Paul McCartney takes yet another independent step forward with the release this month of the Apple label of “Ram,” the first album co-written and co-produced with his wife Linda.
The L.P. was recorded in America and Linda is featured both as a vocalist and instrumentally.
She also took the sleeve photographs which include the front cover picture of Paul holding the horns of a ram outside their Scottish home. Says Paul:
“We’ve been writing many more songs together and we’re developing as a harmony team. We conceived the LP in Britain although we went off to America to record it. Now we’re back in Scotland and having a break but we’re writing more stuff as we go along.”
The album seems to have been made on a very informal basis.
“I found this New York drummer, Denny Seiwell, and we just went to work the following Monday,” explains Paul.
“To get together a couple of other people I listened to various musicians and picked out guitarists Dave Spinoza and Hugh McCracken. We had a bit of a holiday before going out to the West Coast and there I found this very good mixing engineer Eirik Wangberg, a Norwegian.”
