Ram On: The 50th Anniversary Tribute to Paul & Linda McCartney’s Ram, which you can pre-order now, was co-produced by former Wings drummer Denny Seiwell, who played on the original album, and veteran producer and session guitarist Fernando Perdomo.
Seiwell plays drums on most of the tracks on Ram On, which features new renditions of all of Ram’s 12 songs, plus versions of “Another Day” and “Oh Woman Oh Why,” the A-side and B-side of a non-album single issued shortly before Ram’s May 1971 release.
Over 100 musicians contributed to Ram On, including Elton John guitarist Davey Johnstone, former Heart bassist Dan Rothchild, Carnie Wilson of Wilson Phillips, Wilco’s Pat Sansone, Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago, and Pink Floyd backup singer Durga McBroom.
Besides Seiwell, two other musicians who played on “Ram On” also lent their talents to the project, guitarist Dave Spinozza and flugel horn player Marvin Stamm, who recreated their respective parts for “Another Day” and the chart-topping “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey.”
RAM ON is produced by Fernando Perdomo and Denny Seiwell.
Released on May 17, 1971, Ram was McCartney’s second post-Beatles project. It peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200, and sold a million copies in the U.S.
