This recording is the last
performance by Paul & John in a studio. It happened on
Sunday March 31, 1974.
Although the performance is very poor, this recording is an historical moment to
On that day of March, John held a night music jam session at his beach house in L.A. Those in attendance included Paul McCartney (vocals, drums), Jesse Ed Davis (guitar), Harry Nilsson (vocals), Stevie Wonder (electric piano) & Bobby Keys (sax). John played vocals and drums. Mal Evans and May Pang also attended the session.
A few days sooner, on Thursday March 28, Paul & Linda had dropped at Burbank Studios, California, where John Lennon started to produce the Harry Nilsson album "Pussy Cats". Paul & Linda intended to watch the recording, and Paul finally joined in a jam session with John and other musicians on the track "Midnight Special", joining John for the first time in a musical environment since the split of The Beatles.
