Paul McCartney | Another Day

14 04 2010

This is Paul’s first single released post-Beatles. “Another Day” was actually originally recorded as a demo during the Get Back sessions which would eventually become the Let It Be album. As I noted in an earlier post about The 5th Beatle, that era was essentially the beginning of the end for The Beatles. Which really makes the timing of this release much more interesting. The song comes from a very prolific period for Paul as a Beatle but had been culled out, probably due to band politics.  This official ‘single‘ version was recorded during the sessions for McCartney’s second solo album Ram. Oddly enough, this song and it’s B Side “Oh Woman, Oh Why” did not make it on to that album, instead they were released as a 45 just a few months prior. They have subsequently been included on some recent CD/MP3 reissues of Ram as “Another Day” has become one of Paul’s more popular songs as a solo artists.

Here is that rough demo version from the Get Back sessions. It surfaced from a group of bootleg-type recordings now known as The Rhine River Tapes. It is difficult to hear and the song is not yet as developed as the future polished version but for those complete-ists out there, I felt should include it.
