About

From the liner notes:

Happiness in the homeland! VENUS AND MARS is next!! Okay, I know what some of you may say – “Didn’t Paul just release his own Archive version of this last year??” While it’s true that he did, he missed so many opportunities to include extra stuff. Almost to make up for it, he put three “bonus tracks” up for exclusive downloading on his website, and a fourth (the rough mix of “Junior’s Farm”) could be found on another site. Well, I took what he gave us, all the downloads, and then added an additional two hours of material from the era (including my own stereo downmix of the DTS-surround CD, which provides a vastly different listening experience to the standard album), to give a much more complete picture of what Paul + Co. was up to musically at this time. As with Flowers, I’ve also used the best sources for everything and did my best job to make everything sound as good as possible. No noise-reduction was
used, but an occasional re-eq was done to some of the unreleased tracks to give them a more uniform sound to the rest of the collection. To top it off, I once again did full artwork for the set, including cd labels that re-create the LP label much better than the official Archive release did (I had NO qualms whatsoever about using the “Capitol” logo for effect on my discs!! ) Anyway, here it is – four hours of classic Paul, circa 1975…

CD 3
1-13 – The DTS 5.1 mix – of the Venus and Mars. Originally released as Quadrophonic Version, but in November 1997 re-released on cd. Notice the different track order. The Quad 8-track version had yet another running order (much more similar to the LP).

15 – Rock Show (Old version) – alternate take, recorded in November 1975, released on Venus and Mars – Paul McCartney Archive Collection
16 – Letting Go – rough mix, available on paulmccartney.com
17 – Junior’s Farm – alt. mix by Ernie Winfrey, available as a download on another website
18 – Hey Diddle – 1978 remix for Cold Cuts
19 – Tomorrow – instrumental reggae version of the song from Wings debut album Wild Life. Recorded around October 1974 and considered for the first version of Cold Cuts
20 – Proud Mum – recorded for a commercial for Mother’s Pride bread. Never used. Considered for the first version of Cold Cuts
21 – Proud Mum (Reprise) – more of the same
22 – My Carnival (Party Mix) – edit of the Gary Langan remix, released on the b-side of the 12″ maxi single ‘Spies Like Us’, in November 1985
