||Paul's thirtieth solo single.
Credited to "Paul McCartney"
With Tug Of War (the album) dropping out of the charts, a second single was extracted to boost sales.
It had the desired affect, turning around the fortunes of the album.
"Take It Away" was slightly remixed for the single release, having the cross-fade from Tug Of War removed.
The non Tug Of War B-side was written in 1974, but recorded during the same sessions, with Paul playing all instruments except
clarinet, which was played by Tony Coe, and backing vocals by Paul, Linda and Eric Stewart (ex-10cc).
The pressing comes with a Silver/black Parlophone label.
The "All rights of the manufacturer" message around the edge of the label ends with "EMI Records Ltd."
In the run out groove of the 7" the A-side has "NS" written into it.
Both formats were released in matching picture sleeves, which were designed by Hipgnosis, and photographed by Linda.

The labels are classic Parlophone.
