Playback: McCartney by Paul McCartney

Studio Two, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producer: Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney had finished recording his debut album McCartney on 25 February 1970. From then he prepared artwork and the release schedule.

On this day he returned to Abbey Road to listen to a playback of the recordings. It was a brief session, lasting from 6.30-8pm. Like all the other McCartney sessions, it was booked under the pseudonym Billy Martin.

The only song listened to on this occasion was ‘Oo You’. McCartney listened to both the eight-track and stereo mix, which had been previously prepared at Morgan Studios.
