            Hi there!
            As you can see from this Sandwich's spread, it's been a time of great activity for Paul. He's been involved in making three super videos for the singles released from 'Press to Play', went to Germany to receive the prestigious "Life Time Achievement" Bambi Award, and most recently appeared at The Theatre Royal, Drury Late, to perform "Only Love Remains" for the Royal Variety Show.
            We've given space to all these events, but when setting out to get the stories behind the new videos we realised that we had a wealth of material from all Paul's past videos and promotional films too. So this issue serves only as an introduction to the subject, which we'll explore more closely in forthcoming issues of the Sandwich.
            The news you've all been waiting for is that Paul is busy putting together a band with a view to touring. Phil Ramone is giving him a hand with this, and will be working with Paul on his next album. Don't start queuing, however, as nothing definite has been fixed. The club will, of course, keep you posted when there is anything to report.
            In this issue we've included a puzzle submitted by one of our readers, which we hope you'll enjoy. Our regular crossword, compiled by Bert Danher (about whom we'll reveal more in due course), has been left out this time, as Bert is especially busy, having added to his stable the new Independent newspaper; he already contributes puzzles to The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph and The Financial Times, probably the most prestigious crosswords in the world. So although we don't get much feedback on crosswords from readers, what we do get lets us know there's a body of you out there who really love them.
            Early December has seen the release of more singles from 'Press to Play', and as the singles lifted on each side of the Atlantic differ, I though you might like to have a table of exactly what mixes were done, by whom, and where they were released. So here goes:

            'til next time,


            When asking Sally Daisley about her past, she'll often reply "Don't ask me about dates". But she remembers without hesitation the day she came to work at MPL, "The seventh of May".
            If the company made an impression on her, the reverse was also true - and not only because of an arresting vertical topknot, lately levelled off. ("Watch it come down!"). Being receptionist at
MPL is quite different from, say, the same job with a record company, such is the intense interest in all McCartney activities. And when it comes to dealing with the public, Sally is "the frontline. Everything went mad when the album came out! There were lots of phone calls - the place was really buzzing!"
            When did she first meet the McCartneys?
            "About a week after I joined. They always stop and say something as they go in and out."
            Although Sally stumbled on the job by chance - "I walked into an agency and heard
someone talking about it" - her interests make her ideally suited to it. Firstly, she's fond of music. Club Sandwich 43
            "I was always very aware of the Beatles' music. I remember the boys at school singing 'She Loves You' and pretending to play guitars.
Venus and Mars and Wings Over America made the first big impact on me. Previously I'd liked Paul and the Beatles, but had never bought one of their records.
            On top of that, she's a singer herself: "I used to do rock, jazz, that sort of thing. I was offered contracts twice, once by Tony Meehan who used to be in The Shadows-he said he'd thought of a new name for me - image - everything! But I didn't keep the appointment we made. I was only 17 and I chickened out.
            "There weren't many women singers to copy (Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde came later): I tried to sound like Kiki Dee but my voice wasn't deep enough!"
            Sally D. (no, not the 'G' girl in that country song) has a love of animals which goes right back to her early childhood. "We always had dogs, including a Tibetan Spaniel called George, alias 'The Guv'nor', and there were
some ghastly stick insects which Mum hoovered up by mistake one day. Unfortunately I'm allergic to cats - my parents have three at the moment! "I've worked a lot with animals. My first job was with dogs, working for a friend of Mum's near Henley for about two years." Then followed secretarial college, after which Sally decided to temp for a while as a method of finding a job which really interested her.
            Her last 'proper' job was in the stables of Marion Mould, women's world show jumping champion in 1965 and the first woman to win an individual Olympic show jumping medal (in Mexico in 1968). You might guess from all these animal capers that Ms. Daisley was a country girl, but she's very much a Londoner.
            "I was born in Highgate, where my parents still live, and went to Henrietta Barnett Grammar School in Hampstead Garden Suburb. Then I went to the dogs!"
            Unfortunately, a dog was something she couldn't take to the flat in Highbury, where she now lives.
            "I definitely like North London - Mum and Dad must be less than five miles away. I get the bus in to work at 7.30 to miss the rush -1 can't stand tubes - but unfortunately I get caught in it on the way home."
            Sally's other hobbies, besides singing, include riding and working-out with weights ("not a hobby, more a necessity"). Musically she favours Dire Straits and Phil Collins, while in traffic jams she passes the time 'in an Agatha of Christie' (J. Lennon,
circa '64), or reading about the unfortunate Anne Boleyn.
            Sally Daisley is a lively 28 year-old who has shown in just over six months at MPL that she has the right blend of professionalism and good humour to fit in with the established team. But what would Hercule Poirot make of the Vanished Topknot?
