Re: The Official Paul McCartney Thread

Great posts all!!!! I love the Chaos and Creation bonus DVD as well!!

:grinthumb

Let's do a little Red Rose Speedway....an album where I have met all the members in WINGS. It was a great line up for sure and a stelalr album mixed with a lot of variety that only Macca can deliver.

Also had the great hit single MY LOVE



Big Barn Bed from the special James Paul McCartney



The albums final medley: Hold Me Tight/Lazy Dynamite/Hands of Love/Power Cut is pretty impressive as well.

Re: The Official Paul McCartney Thread

The end of this first big WINGS line up would come after the release of Live And Let Die, recorded for the BOND film of the same name.



Well let me go ahead and bump the thread here with Paul's own Sgt. Peppers, "Band On The Run"

This would be the first time Paul ventured out with just Denny and Linda as Henry and Denny Siewell did not fancy going off to Lagos to record.

I would say the three of them did just fine...wouldn't you??? :grinthumb

I will always consider this to be one of the greatest romantic songs ever written. Not because the lyrics are so incredible, they are nice, but nothing award winning. However the emotion put into the vocals and the music is what REALLY makes me love this tune.

Re: The Official Paul McCartney Thread

This thread inspired me to pull my Wings "Rockshow" laserdisc and give it a spin.

I heard on the radio that when McCartney presented "Live And Let Die" to the producers, they thought it was a demo...

Re: The Official Paul McCartney Thread

^^I consider "Live and Let Die" hands down the best Bond song ever!!...:D

Back to MP's post about Band on the Run, I bought that when it was released and wore it out. Loved the cover photograph, I recognized James Coburn and Christopher Lee right off.

Really good bit about the artwork. The only McCartney release I have is Wingspan which is a nice retro of his work. Two songs I really like from his catalog that I think aren't as well known are "Give Ireland Back To The Irish" and "Mull Of Kintyre"... The serenade of bagpipes on the latter is so down home you picture the moors and loads of sheep being herded about. Very country...

Re: The Official Paul McCartney Thread

The cover art to BOTR is a true classic.....Christopher Lee's expression is awesome. Speaking of "ROCKSHOW" a new re-mastered DVD or Blu Ray wouldn't be a bad idea there Paul. :flirt

The interesting bit about "Rockshow" on the laserdisc is that it is supposed to be edited. I read a comment by one soul who claims he saw a longer cut that was shown at the cinemas in England during its release. Parts of it are on a 3 DVD set titled "The McCartney Years."

Re: The Official Paul McCartney Thread

I've got the McCartney years on DVD...I'll need to re-look at that against my already existing VHS version of Rockshow.

Interesting :grinthumb
