Paul Weller – Handwritten Letter to Paul McCartney
A handwritten letter from former Jam and Style Council founder Paul Weller to Paul McCartney, inviting him to participate in the recording of a version of The Beatles 'Come Together' for the 1995 LP 'The Help Album.' Organized to benefit the international charity War Child, which provides aid to war-stricken areas such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, the multi-artist album was recorded on a single day, Monday September 4, 1995, mixed on Tuesday, the fifth and was in shops on Saturday the ninth. It reached #1 in the UK album compilation charts. McCartney did join Weller on the song, as did Oasis' Noel Gallagher and Ocean Colour Scene's Steve Craddock (the track was credited to the "Paul Weller and Friends".) Weller's best friend and biographer, NME and Melody Maker writer Paolo Hewitt faxed the letter to McCartney's office, keeping the original for his files. The letter, which marks the beginning of this historic collaboration, was obtained directly from Paolo Hewitt, and his letter of provenance is included. This comes with our written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
