Once upon a long ago - Paul McCartney

'Once upon a long ago' was recorded as a new track for Paul McCartney's 1987 compilation album 'All the best!'. The track was produced by Phil Ramone and mixed by George Martin. Personally, I think it's one of McCartney's most accomplished tracks, not least because of the moving violin solo by Nigel Kennedy.

The single reached number 10 in the UK singles chart, McCartney's last top 10 hit in the UK. It did slightly better in the Netherlands, peaking at number 6. The single was not released in the USA.

My collection: 7" single no. 2199
Found: Record fair, Rotterdam, October 8, 1994
Cost: 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Once upon a long ago' / 'Back on my feet'
