Low tide, Barbados, 1972 #LindaMcCartney #Barbados #1972

"Ram on, give your heart to somebody...'' On this day in 1971, Paul released his second solo album, Ram.
The only album credited to both Paul and Linda, RAM reached Number 1 in the UK and stayed in the US Top 10 for five months. Recording after heโ€™d left The Beatles and before the formation of Wings, Paul initially flew with Linda to New York to record the songs they'd written but arrived without a band. As Paul recalls, โ€œWe were thinking of forming a group at that time, Wings. We went to New York, found a really grotty little basement somewhere and auditioned a bunch of people. We got someone to throw a lot of drummers at us, out of which we picked Denny Seiwell whoโ€™s one of the best, and his personality fitted. Then we went in, worked with him, Hugh McCracken, Dave Spinozza, a couple of New York session men, and did RAM.โ€ To avoid arousing too much interest, the auditions were held under the guise of a session for a commercial jingle. As well as Paulโ€™s lead vocals there are harmonies from Linda. โ€œI gave her a hard time, I must say, but we were pleased with the results. Elton John later said somewhere that he thought it was the best harmonies heโ€™d heard in a long while. It was very much the two of us against the world at that point.โ€ Despite an initially lukewarm Rolling Stone review, it was later hailed by them as one of his best solo albums. In 2012, RAM was reissued in remastered form with many extra elements, as part of the Paul McCartney Archive Collection.

May 23, 1970 - Paul McCartney's debut solo album, 'McCartney', started a three-week run at No.1 on the US album chart. It was issued on Apple Records in April 1970 after McCartney had resisted attempts by his fellow Beatles to have the release delayed to allow for Apple's previously scheduled titles, notably the band's 'Let It Be' album.

McCartney recorded his eponymous solo album during a period of depression and confusion. Following John Lennon's announcement in a band meeting on 20 September 1969 that he wanted a "divorce" from the Beatles, McCartney withdrew to his farm in Campbeltown, Scotland โ€“ "brokenhearted, shocked, and dispirited at the loss of the only job he had ever known". In McCartney's own estimation, he came close to suffering a nervous breakdown. While the announcement was not made public, partly for business reasons, McCartney's period in seclusion with his family coincided with widespread rumors in America that he had died โ€“ an escalation of the three-year-old "Paul Is Dead" conspiracy theory. The rumor was broken only by journalists from BBC Radio and Life magazine tracking him down at his farm, High Park.

With wife Linda's encouragement, McCartney began to consider a future outside the Beatles, by writing or finishing songs for his first solo album, McCartney.

Apart from Linda's vocal contributions, McCartney performed the entire album by himself, playing every instrument. Featuring loosely arranged (and in some cases, unfinished) home recordings, McCartney explored the back-to-basics style that had been the original concept for the Let It Be project in 1969.

A press release in the form of a self-interview, supplied with UK promotional copies of McCartney, led to the announcement of the group's break-up on 10 April 1970. Partly as a result of McCartney's role in officially ending the Beatles, the album received an unfavorable response from the majority of music critics, although the song "Maybe I'm Amazed" was consistently singled out for praise. Commercially, McCartney benefited from the publicity surrounding the break-up; it held the number 1 position for three weeks on the US Billboard 200 chart and peaked at number 2 in Britain.
