A Toot and a Snore in '74 is a rare bootleg album of the final recording session in which John Lennon and Paul McCartney played together, which gained wider prominence when McCartney made reference to the session in a 1997 interview. Lennon did the same in a 1975 interview. The story is corroborated by biographies such as Christopher Sandford's 2006 McCartney.[1] Also present, though possibly not playing, at the star-studded session were Ringo Starr, Keith Moon, and Klaus Voorman. Lennon was in his "lost weekend", kicked out of the house by Yoko for a year; thus he was with his girlfriend May Pang. Sandford paints the scene very vividly, as the room froze when Paul walked in, and remained perfectly silent until John said, "Valiant Paul McCartney, I presume?" Paul responded: "Sir Jasper Lennon [a character John played during an early TV appearance skit], I presume?" Paul extended a hand, John shook it, and the mood was pleasant but subdued, cordial but not especially warm (at least initially). Paul may (says Sandford) have encouraged John to repair his marriage with Yoko, possibly at Yoko's request.
