Originally released in 1974, McGear was the second solo album by Mike McGear (McCartney) and was a more serious record than his work with the Liverpool satirical trio Scaffold, or his work with Roger McGough on the McGough & McGear album. Recorded at Strawberry studios in Stockport, (the musical home of the band 10cc), the album was produced by PAUL McCARTNEY (who also played on the album and co-wrote most of the material with Mike) and featured LINDA McCARTNEY and members of WINGS, along with guests such as PADDY ( Pipes ) MOLONEY of The Chieftains
Simply Love You. Written-By – McGear, McCartney. B4. Givin' Grease A Ride. Mixed By – Mike McGear. Photography By – James Wedge. Pipe – Paddy "Pipes" Moloney. Producer, Mixed By – Paul McCartney. Saxophone – Brian Jones (12).
The album featured a selection of tremendous songs such as ‘Rainbow Lady’, ‘Simply Love You’, ‘Givin’ Grease a Ride’ and ‘The Man Who Found God on the Moon’. McGear also featured an inspired cover of the Roxy Music song ‘Sea Breezes’, the evocative ‘The Casket’ and the hit single ‘Leave It’. The sessions also spawned a non-album single; ‘Dance the Do’ (which featured Vivian Stanshall). McGear was charming, eccentric and unique in equal measure and was one of the great unsung albums of its time.
