I just listened through Thrillington again yesterday. I love it for when I want Ram , but no words. I’m intrigued by the idea of listening to it without having heard Ram . Especially since you describe it as a hoot. I guess the sense of humour is in the album itself, and not just in its relationship to Ram .
It really was a brilliant idea, and so well executed.

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Listening to the Beatles early on I never fully appreciated Paul’s love for big band jazz. He’s in the position to put together a studio band re-record an album that was underrated at the time, but when it was recording it really was on of the earliest examples of Paul making brilliant use of session musicians, especially in his solo career. The cover and title are are fantastic, I wonder what the other Beatles thought of this album.

Thread revival inspired me to give this aurally delightful oddity another listening, which I do maybe once or twice a year; and in the course of looking online to find some information about the musicians, I found this nice informative article about the making of the album. Turns out the guitarist on the session was Vic Flick, who played “Ringo’s Theme (This Boy )” on the AHDN soundtrack.
