Paul McCartney

Album Notes

Liverpool Sound Collage was created by request as the soundtrack for About Collage, Peter Blake's exhibition at The Tate Liverpool. Extending the medium beyond its traditional visual form, Paul collated elements for his collage on the streets of Liverpool, where he interviewed astonished shoppers and passers-by on his tape-recorder. The locally-recorded elements range from snatches of chat with students at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, to the sound of The Mersey, to comments from "the lady who gets me my chips when I'm back in The Pool". Extending the theme of using sound fragments from local voices, The Liverpool Sound Collage also contains out-takes from recordings made between 1965-69 with George Harrison, Ringo Starr and John Lennon. The sound collage is a collaboration between Paul McCartney, Super Furry Animals and Youth: "I compiled sounds and made the basic collage," Paul recounted. "I asked Cian Ciarán of Super Furry Animals to mix something from it, which he kindly did, and my mate Youth used his talents to add a final touch".
