As reported on this site earlier this year, Peter Blake's exhibition at Liverpool's Tate Gallery has been accompanied by some very special music, prepared by Sir Paul McCartney!
These recordings are now being made available to the public - officially! Here's some information from the record label:
"Paul McCartney's Liverpool Sound Collage was created as the soundtrack for About Collage, Peter Blake's exhibition now running at The Tate Liverpool.
It extends the medium beyond its traditional visual form and includes recordings made by McCartney on the streets of Liverpool, as well as 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, The Super Furry Animals and Youth and is available (in the UK) on Hydra Records from 21st August 2000."
