Brung To Ewe By Ram
I recently became a bit fascinated when I learned about this. It's apparently a promo for radio stations and contained 15 introductions/transitions for the songs. If there ever was a McCartney hidden gem, this is it. In a video I found, it seems like there was yet another unreleased/unfinished song from the RAM SESSIONS. I can hear them chanting "Now Hear This". I'm sure everybody here would love to hear it(even incomplete). Hopefully it's not so uncommon that I never have a chance at owning a copy. Can anyone tell me more about this?
In May 1971 a promo L.P. was issued to radio stations to promote the L.P. "Ram". This promo was on Apple, had a catalogue number of SPRO 6210 and was called "Brung To Ewe By". The front cover reads, "Here are some introductions you might like to use before RAM album tracks. We made them while we were doing RAM, and they're designed to play straight into an album track, or out of it for that matter. Anyway, if you'd enjoy using them, we'd enjoy having you. Ram On ! Paul & Linda McCartney." The rear of this 33 1/3 r.p.m. 45 has comments by an employee of McCartney Productions, Inc. ... "The enclosed disc contains fifteen different 30 second and 60 second introductions to RAM album tracks. These spots were recorded in the studio by Paul & Linda during their work on RAM. This disc is an exclusive limited pressing for radio stations only. We hope you will use and enjoy them. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me c/o McCartney Productions. Regards, Diane Brooks."

wow, that is freakin' awesome! I know it could get repetitive, but I wonder what the album would sound like if you played it with the corresponding intro's. If I find it on youtube, i'll post a link here.
