An Interesting Discovery...

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a serious Beatle fan and I recently read about a rather unique session after the breakup. Paul and Linda McCartney visited John Lennon at a session in 1974 where the bespectacled one was producing an album for Harry Nilsson and it turned out to be a jam session! Look at the lineup:

Guitar, vocals: John Lennon, Drums, background vocals: Paul McCartney, Keyboards: Stevie Wonder, for starters. It turned into a bootleg album notoriously called "A Toot and a Snore in '74"( I guess that you could probably figure out why it was called that:)). Now I don't normally like bootleg albums because they do not benefit the artists financially and the public usually gets a pretty bad recording in the process, but it was fascinating to me to listen to these music legends jamming with each other. Now don't expect a high quality recording or great production, and there were other factors that led to the overall outcome of the session but who cares? This is a unique way to see that John and Paul DID get along after the breakup of the Beatles. Check it out. Just click on the link below.
