The Beatles Top 60 Solo Songs: #36 : “Sally G”- Paul McCartney & Wings. For my money anyway the first half of the 1970’s were the best period of Paul McCartney’s post- Beatles career. Not that every album or single was dynamite- they weren’t [the album Wild Life was a real turkey and can we forget or forgive the nursery rhyme turned to single “Mary Had A Little Lamb?”} but Paul had a pretty high batting average during that period. The non-album single “Junior’s Farm” with its country music b-side “Sally G” came out in October of 1974. Paul was influenced by his stay in Nashville in writing both of the songs. “Sally G” was written after a visit to club in Nashville’s Printer’s Alley. “Sally G” includes the contributions of a trio of Nashville session musicians-Vassar Clements, Lloyd Green and Johnny Gimble supporting Wings. “Sally G” even made the country singles chart- peaking at #51. This single would be the final single Paul McCartney would release on Apple Records.
