THE BEATLES / PAUL MCCARTNEY - UNRELEASED DEMO CASSETTE 'ATTENTION'

A Maxell C-60 audio cassette with handwritten labels, contents including a demo version of 'Attention', which was written by Paul McCartney and recorded by Ringo Starr on the 1981 album 'Stop and Smell The Roses'. This version here is four minutes and two seconds and is simply Paul McCartney recording with piano and vocal percussion accompaniment - both by McCartney. The audio quality is excellent and it is an incredible listen from start to finish. See below for a Youtube video of the track.

Provenance: the tape was given to Howie Casey, who played saxophone on the Ringo Starr album as a reference for the track in preparation for recording sessions. Howie's wife Sheila Casey would perform backing vocals on the track along with Linda McCartney.

This item is sold as an artefact only, without copyright. Any reproduction is strictly prohibited.

Sold for £8,000
