About

Paul McCartney spent the summer of 1979 recording tracks at home, which would end up forming the McCartney II album. In September / October, he moved to Abbey Road studios for the mixing of those tracks, with the assistance of Eddie Klein.

It was during the mixing of the recordings in Number 2 studio when I became more involved with the project. Paul did all the mixing and my role was simply that of second engineer and technician. […] I don’t remember how long the mixing process took though it was probably no longer than a week, two at most. Paul then mixed the short edit pieces required for transitions from one song to another.
