Song facts

Given away as a free download on on November 4th 2014, “Love My Baby” is a short (1:16) lullaby-like outtake from the 1974 One Hand Clapping documentary:

‘Love My Baby’ was recorded as part of the film ‘One Hand Clapping’. Filmed in Studio 2 at Abbey Road, in late summer of 1974, the documentary captures Paul playing numbers from Band on the Run with Wings.

Paul has said of the film: “‘One Hand Clapping’. It’s nice to see that one re-surfacing. It was made by a friend of mine, David Litchfield; he produced a little magazine that was funky (Ritz, co-edited with David Bailey). We decided that he would shoot a very simple piece, on video. We would just go into Abbey Road and play basically what we had rehearsed. So we went in there and it was very simply filmed, absolute basic stuff, and I think its charm now is that there’s no pretence. It is what it is. We just called it ‘One Hand Clapping’, for absolutely no reason.
