About

The basic track of “Little Woman Love” had been recorded on November 13, 1970. On this day, Paul McCartney returned to it and worked on overdubs. He was joined in the studio by jazz session bassist Milt Hinton (who was in Cab Calloway’s band for fifteen years), who added a standup bass part.

Paul said to me he wanted someone for a slap bass and I suggested Milt Hinton, called The Judge, 65 years old at the time. We were amazed at the energy he had.

Little Woman Love” would remain unreleased till its inclusion on Wings’ second non-album single, in May 1972.

Maccazine - Volume 40, Issue 3 - RAM Part 1 - Timeline

This very special RAM special is the first in a series. This is a Timeline for 1970 – 1971 when McCartney started writing and planning RAM in the summer of 1970 and ending with the release of the first Wings album WILD LIFE in December 1971. [...] One thing I noted when exploring the material inside the deluxe RAM remaster is that the book contains many mistakes. A couple of dates are completely inaccurate and the story is far from complete. For this reason, I started to compile a Timeline for the 1970/1971 period filling the gaps and correcting the mistakes. The result is this Maccazine special. As the Timeline was way too long for one special, we decided to do a double issue (issue 3, 2012 and issue 1, 2013).
