All tracks published by Northern Songs *except cover-song "Love In Strange" which published by Cromwell Music.
"Love In Strange" originally recorded in late 1956 by duet under the name Mickey & Sylvia.
Album was recorded in August 1971 except "Dear Friend" which was recorded in November-December 1970 during "Ram" album sessions in New York City.


When Paul and Linda McCartney were in New York recording 'RAM' they needed a drummer so they found a sweaty old basement in the West 40's and invited some drummers to play on a battered old drum kit. One of those who turned up and went straight for his torn toms was Denny Seiwell, a tall type with eight generations of drummers in his family, who played well and left the drum kit throbbing. After that, Paul, Linda and Denny played together on 'RAM' and then each took off for a holiday.

The Macs returned to Britain and during the time following wrote a bunch of songs at their country retreat.

When the time came to go recording again they rang Denny Laine, a Birmingham lad, and asked him if he was coming out to play. Replying in the affirmative he brought his faithful guitar, and he and the Macs, along with Denny S. (who had arrived from the States as if by magic carrying his wife who was drunk again) and his drums, proceeded.

They rehearsed for a while, sang some old songs, wrote some new ones and in time headed for the big city studios.

In three days they had laid down most of the tracks and by the end of a couple of weeks the album was finished.

In this wrapper is the music they made. Can you dig it?
