“Oh My”

“Oh My”

Paul McCartney met Linda Eastman for the first time 51 years ago today (May 15th, 1967) at the London club The Bag o’ Nails, and 50 years ago today at a party in New York celebrating the start of The Beatles’ Apple Corps she gave him a slip of paper with her phone number on it and they spent the night together. (Oh My!)  In 1971 she joined him writing and recording the album Ram featuring songs like “Too Many People” and “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey”

The drummer on Ram, who became an original member of Wings, says it was his favorite session ever. That was Denny Seiwell.  He remembers the session and the song “Too Many People”

“Mary was a tiny little baby and she was jumping all over the place and Linda was making tea and we had two CBS-trained engineers with ties on in there. It was really so cool and we’d come in there in the morning and just make some music that was so special. I mean, Paul would write these songs and as they evolved you just had a feeling like something major was going on there. To this day, it’s my favorite record that I’ve made with anybody and I’ve probably made a couple of hundred records over my years as a studio musician.”
