Paul and Linda McCartney released the album RAM, the second solo album from McCartney after the acrimonious Beatles Split and the ongoing issues within the management and legal side and the formation of the band WINGS, recorded between November 1970 and April 1971 at Columbia Studios and AR Studios in New York City.
The song “RAM ON” from the albums first side was reprised on the second side before the final track in a similar vein to the Beatles “Abbey Road” album medley . there were three singles issued “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey”, “The Back Seat Of My Car” and the song “Eat At Hope” . Reviews were harsh at the time and Lennon had spoken that it was Muzak to his ears, but decades later the album has received praise for its big melodies and orchestral trippery.
