Paul McCartney and two of the key musicians on his 1971 classic solo album Ram, looked back on the collection on the eve of its 50th anniversary.
Guitarist David Spinozza recalled to Mojo, that McCartney's first full-blown professional studio set since the Beatles' demise didn't disappoint: “Immediately what dawned on me was how good the songwriting was. I couldn't believe how well Paul could sing the melodies to these songs, and sometimes even change the melody. He would just sing it different each time.”
Spinozza, who would go to supply lead guitar on John Lennon's 1973 Mind Games album, spoke about how the two former-Beatles differed: “The were both very biz-like. Paul took a little more time with the production. John liked to work fast. Paul was into a lot of the detail. He was always looking for a special, special sound.”
