On this day, Paul McCartney (joined by other Wings members) was back at Apple Studios, at 3 Savile Row; surely the first time since the break-up of The Beatles in April 1970.
It’s unclear what was exactly achieved on this day. Denny Laine explained that they were there to mix “Give Ireland Back To The Irish“, but that was also the purpose of the session at Island Studios the day before – was it about completing the work, or mixing the instrumental version released as the B-side of the single, or…?
We went into the Apple Studios to mix ‘Give Ireland Back To The Irish’ and [Paul] looked around those studios and he must have been thinking, ‘Blimey, I helped build all this.’ He must feel bad that he can’t go on being involved.Denny Laine – Interview with Record Mirror, August 1972

"Maccazine is a hard copy magazine (a bound paperback) about Paul McCartney. It is published twice a year. Due to the fact that the Internet has taken over the world and the fact that the latest Paul McCartney news is to be found on hundreds of websites, we have decided to focus on creating an informative paper magazine about Paul McCartney."
"In this issue we take you back to the early days of Paul McCartney’s solo career when he decided to form a new group. With Wings he proved there was life after The Beatles. This Maccazine features a detailed timeline of ‘the birth’ of the band with interesting entries including many new facts and unpublished photos. Follow-up timelines will be published in the upcoming years."
