MAY 23RD: ON THIS DAY

May 23rd: On This Day

On this day in 1970, Paul McCartney’s debut solo album, McCartney, started a three-week run at No.1 on the US Billboard 200 chart.

Apart from Linda McCartney’s vocal contributions, McCartney performed (and recorded) the entire album solo. Though the album received an unfavorable response, the song “Maybe I’m Amazed” received critical acclaim.

The album has since been Certified Double Platinum by the RIAA.
