Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Richard Hewson (conductor).
  • Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, England.
  • Originally released in 1977, THRILLINGTON is perhaps the most obscure album to be issued by a former Beatle. It's safe to assume that part of the reason why this album has received so little attention is that Paul McCartney does not even appear on the recording. The origins of THRILLINGTON date back to 1971, when McCartney hired English arranger/conductor Richard Hewson to record an orchestral version of McCartney's recently released RAM album.
  • Though Hewson quickly composed and recorded a delightfully eclectic interpretation of RAM, the results were not released until 1977, when the recordings were issued under the fictitious artist name of Percy "Thrills" Thrillington, who, as the story went, was an Irish bandleader signed to McCartney's production company. While the album was not a commercial success, it does feature some lovely music, including jazzy versions of McCartney compositions like "Dear Boy" and "Smile Away" and a big pop production number of "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" that will be of interest to both McCartney fans and aficionados of kitschy, lounge-oriented instrumental music.
