25. Later with Jools Holland 11/06/99: Paul was accompanied by all the members present on the album, as he launched into “Honey Hush”, which was a rousing beginning to the show. During this rotation Paul joined Jools Holland (ex of Squeeze) at the piano where they chatted for 5 minutes, in the midst of which, a short clip of the Beatles playing “Hey Bulldog” in the studio was shown and the band members were introduced. Paul played “No Other Baby”, the strongest track on the Album, and this sounded phenomenal.
