From, February 15, 2018:

Three decades before Paul McCartney got his Kisses On The Bottom, his last Wings lead guitarist, Laurence Juber, took his own trip into Standard Time — with McCartney’s encouragement and, on one track, assistance. Now Juber is happy to have that long out-of-print collection back in the land of the living — or at least the digital living.

Juber re-released Standard Time, which includes classics such as “Stormy Weather,” “Dinah,” “Autumn Leaves,” “The Christmas Song” and more (mostly from song copyrights McCartney owned), along with the unreleased Wings track “Maisie,” this month. It was originally released as a vinyl EP back in 1982, and the new version presents the full set after Juber was able to get the rights to the recordings and release them on his own label, HoloGram Recordings. “I felt like there’s this album that deserves to be available digitally,” Juber– who was with Wings from 1978-81 and played on 1979’s Back To The Egg album — tells Billboard. “It kind of went off my radar for a while, but when I did my book Guitar With Wings three years ago I was able to get hold of the masters from McCartney’s company for a bonus CD with the special edition. Revisiting it, it actually still sounds fresh even if stylistically there are some kind of ’70s-era touchstones. And it’s such an eclectic collection; I had no idea what category to put it in. But that’s OK; I like doing stuff that isn’t easily categorized.”

Though he was flying high with Wings at the time, Juber says the Standard Time material was “more reflective of the kind of musical world I worked in as a studio musician before I joined Wings.” An alumnus of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra in England, Juber was no stranger to that repertoire and enjoyed “the challenge of creating the trumpet section, the sax section, all the solos, in a guitaristic way. The idea was to have some really cool recordings that would be available in a music library, but with the capability of releasing it as a full album. I just didn’t realize it was going to take the better part of 40 years.” […]
