Take It Away: The Complete Paul McCartney Archive Podcast


Return to Pepperland

Season 3, Ep. 18

We are back for Season Three! From 1984 to 1987, Paul McCartney recorded an abundance of new material. Although not canon, Return to Pepperland is a canceled album (some say) originally slated for release in 1987 to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Now mainly a curio, this bootleg album makes for a convenient catch-all for the stellar (and less than stellar) material from this period—songs written in the early '70s, polished gems not released until the late '90s, and a few fantastic tunes that remain in the MPL vaults. Press play to hear more because this is an episode for true Paul McCartney fans. Good news too, it's not a mile away. Stick around till the end for a special appreciation of our listeners.
