Credited to "Paul McCartney and Wings"
This incarnation featuring : Paul, Linda, Denny Laine, Jimmy McCulloch and Geoff Britton.

With "Band On The Run" still riding high, Paul was not tempted to lift another track as a single but instead wrote some completely new songs.
These tracks were also recorded at the Nashville sessions, and were accompanied by Chet Atkins and Floyd Cramer.

The A-side refers to the farm Paul and Linda were staying at in Nashville, owned by Junior Putnam, and
the B-side is a reference to a Country and Western singer that Paul met in Tennessee.
Originally called Diane after the singer Diane Gaffney, Paul decided to change the title after she sued a paper for using her name without asking.

As Paul was busy recording in New Orleans in early 1975, and as he thought many people would not have heard the B-side,
he decided to "flip-it", re-promoting Sally G as the A-side on 7th February 1975.

The single was not released in a picture sleeve and was the LAST Wings single to appear on Apple.

Above is a scan of an EMI pressing, but there are some contracted out pressings (Decca possibly),
which have a wider gap on the push-out centre and a hand-written matrix number on the run-out groove.
