Flaming Pie was a 1997 album by Paul McCartney. Its title is a reference to a joke John Lennon had used to make about the origin of the Beatles' name: "I saw a man on a flaming pie, and he said, 'You are Beatles with an A.' And we are." It debuted at #2 in both the United States and United Kingdom, its peak chart position.
McCartney has said of his inspiration for Flaming Pie that "the Anthology was very good for me because it reminded me of the Beatles' standards and the standards that we reached with the songs. So in a way it was a refresher course that set the framework for this album."
Beatles producer George Martin co-produced "Calico Skies" and arranged orchestral overdubs on "Somedays" and "Beautiful Night", on which ex-Beatle Ringo Starr sang and played drums. McCartney's son James also plays electric guitar on "Heaven On A Sunday".
