In early February, [Paul] was mixing the recordings from the Glasgow show at RAK Studios with engineer Geoff Emerick. The band itself was not much involved in these sessions, except for the live version of “Coming Up”. It was intended as the B-side of Paul’s studio version, the first single from his new solo release McCartney II

Every aspect of their professional careers as solo artists is explored, from recording sessions, record releases and tours, to television, film and music videos, including everything in between.
