September 4, 1971 - Taken from the album 'Ram', Paul & Linda McCartney went to No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey'. McCartney's first US solo No.1. Paul explained that "Uncle Albert" was based on his real-life uncle. "He's someone I recall fondly and when the song was coming, it was like a nostalgia thing... As for Admiral Halsey, he's one of yours, an American admiral", referring to Admiral William "Bull" Halsey. •• #paulmccartney #thisdayinmusic #1970s
