Paul McCartney apparently took a break from the “Flaming Pie” sessions, to continue the work with Dave Stewart, from Eurythmics, on the track “Whole Life“, started in May – this time in Stewart’s own studio, The Church, in North London. The work from those sessions would remain unreleased until the release of a rough mix on the 2020 Flaming Pie Archive Collection.

Whole Life” would be re-recorded in 2003, still with Dave Steward, and released on the “One Year On 46664” charity album.

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.
