About

From the liner notes:

Disc 1

1-01 A Love For You [rough mix]
Basic track recorded on October 26, 1970 at Columbia Studios, New York, during the Ram sessions. Atnthat stage it was only a backing track (with off mike guide vocals). In March 1971 a proper vocal was recorded by Paul at the Sound Recording Studio, Los Angeles. Some guitar was added too. More overdubs (electric guitar, backing vocals and tambourine) were added at Park Gate Studio, Sussex in January 1981.

1-02 Seaside Woman [demo]
A piano demo with Linda, recorded in Summer 1971.

1-03 Some People Never Know [monitor mix]
A monitor mix of the “Wild Life” song, recorded with Wings at Abbey Road Studios, in August 1971.

1-04 Lucille [rehearsal]
A cover of the Little Richard song, recorded during the very first Wings rehearsal in July 1971. Taken from the DVD “Wings Over The World” documentary, released in May 2013.

1-05 Bluebird [radio broadcast]
On December 14, 1971, the McCartney’s returned to New York City, after a very short holiday in Jamaica. During a telephone interview to Radio Luxembourg, Paul and Linda gave a sneak preview of some songs Paul had written while enjoying the sun (and a smoke).

1-06 C Moon [rough mix]
A live in the studio recording: Take 3 from November 1972, before the overdubs were added.

1-07 Seaside Woman [rough mix]
Recorded on November 27, 1972 – rough mix

1-08 Loup (1st Indian On The Moon) [rough mix]
Another rough mix from the “Red Rose Speedway” sessions. This one is from October 1972.

1-09 Introduction
1-10 Soily [live 7-10-73]
1-11 Big Barn Bed [live 7-10-73]
1-12 When The Night [live 7-10-73]
Wings recorded live, on July 10, 1973, at the City Hall, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, during the final show of their Summer tour.

1-13 Luxy
A radio spot, improvised for Radio Luxembourg, on November 20, 1973. On that day Paul, Linda and Denny were recording songs for Linda’s solo album, in the EMI/Odeon studios in Boulogne-Billancourt, near Paris, France.

1-14 Hello Piccadilly
Probably recorded at Stockport Strawberry studio during the McGear sessions. The jingle was made especially for the start of the new radio station Manchester Independent Radio, hitting the air on April 9, 1974.

1-15 Junior’s Farm [Ernie Winfrey Mix]
1-16 Sally G [Ernie Winfrey Mix]
1-17 Send Me The Heart [Ernie Winfrey Mix]
1-18 Wide Prairie [Ernie Winfrey Mix]
During their stay in Nashville, in July 1974, Wings made some recordings in the local Soundshop Recording Studios, where Ernie Winfrey worked as an engineer. In May 2010, Winfrey brought four 2″ 16 track reels over to Studio ‘79 in Nashville, to transfer to digital and posted some of his mixes on YouTube. Here is his comment: “We had a very productive two weeks and before they left town I asked Paul if it would be OK if I made some rough mixes for myself and he said OK if I would make him a copy to take with him. This version of “Juniors Farm” is the rough mix I made for us. Before the song starts Paul asks if I am ready…I apparently agree… and then proceeds to count it off. He ends the song with his breath, pauses for a couple of seconds and then expresses his excitement. This is stuff that very few people would ever hear. Hope you enjoy it folks.”

1-19 Soily [OHC alternate]
An alternate mix from the version recorded in August 1974 during the “One Hand Clapping” sessions in Abbey Road Studios, London.

1-20 Piano Instrumental
On February 12, 1975, while Wings was recording ‘My Carnival’ in the Sea Saint Studios in New Orleans, a local TV crew came filming, for the news. This was broadcast on the same evening on “News Scene Eight”.

1-21 Ou Est Le Soleil [demo]

2-08 Wino Junko [rough mix]
2-09 Time To Hide [instrumental]
2-10 Must Do Something About It [Paul version – rough mix]
2-11 Richard Cory [rehearsal]
Wings had two roadies: Ian Horn and Trevor Jones – they were brothers-in-law. When Paul quit touring in the early Eighties, Trevor became McCartney’s assistant. In December 1998, a few months after Trevor died, a collection of his memorabilia was auctioned by Christie’s. It included cassettes with unreleased tracks from Paul McCartney and Wings spanning 1971 through to 1987. Twelve years later, in April 2010, about four hours of music taken from these
cassettes, became available on the internet. Fast forward another six years to February 2016. A member of the Bootleg Zone community, who calls himself Nando03, had recently acquired some cassette tapes described as part of the original Trevor Jones tapes collection. He generously offered us direct digital transfers of these tapes, which proved to be of far better quality than the existing bootlegs. Some of the highlights of these are presented here.

2-12 Jamaican Hilite
An rather irritating jam, recorded in Summer 1977, with overdubs added in August 1983.

2-13 Praying Mantis Heart
A demo from Summer 1978, aka ‘Instant Decisions’. Presented on Oobu Joobu- Show 13 in August 1995.

In August 2016 a different, longer mix taken from an acetate, was offered via Soundcloud.

2-16 Waterspout [instrumental]
Outtake from the Water Wings / London Town sessions, recorded in August 1977. This is the basic backing track with a longer ending.

2-17 With A Little Luck [rough mix]
2-18 Don’t Let It Bring You Down [rough mix]
2-19 Morse Moose And The Grey Goose [rough instrumental mix]
Rough mixes from the May 1977 Wings sessions on board the Mobile Studio Fair Carol in the Virgin Islands.

3-11 Cruisin’ Ahead
An outtake from the “Back to the Egg” sessions, recorded in late May 1979 when Wings returned to Lympne Castle to rehearse. Again the RAK Mobile Studio was hired to record some of these rehearsals. Having the facilities at hand, Paul decided to make some proper recordings of three new songs: ‘Robber’s Ball’, ‘Cruising Ahead’ and Denny’s ‘Weep For Love’. Overdubs were added to Linda’s 1975 song ‘New Orleans’. Engineer, Eddie Klein has confirmed the date and that the entire performance was recorded just once, though Paul added a bass overdub the following year. Paul plays electric rhythm and some bass riffs on his electric, Laurence Juber plays the lead guitar fills and solo and Steve Holley plays drums. Denny and Linda do not play any instruments on this complete, but unfinished recording.

Disc 4

4-01 The Tube 100th Anniversary Jingle
Although Paul sings “Tube 100 – 100 years old”, it’s unlikely for a TV-show to reach its 100th anniversary mark. So it’s actually the 100th episode of The Tube that was celebrated. Paul recorded this improvised ditty on April 4, 1986 for that evening TV-show, presented by Jools Holland and Paula Yates.

4-02 Only Love Remains [live 24.11.86]
On Monday November 24, 1986 Paul was a surprise guest at the annual Royal Variety Performance at the Theatre Royal. He is accompanied by Linda McCartney and Tessa Niles (backing vocals), Eric Stewart (acoustic guitar), Jamie Talbot (sax), Graham Ward (drums), Preston Heymen and Nick Glennie-Smith (percussion). Together they play two songs from Paul’s new album “Press To Play”: first ‘Talk More Talk’, that he introduces with the words: “If you don’t mind, this time you could just keep the noise of the jewellery down.” This is followed by ‘Only Love Remains’.

4-03 Daumier’s Law Act 1 – Right
4-04 Daumier’s Law Act 2 – Wrong
4-05 Daumier’s Law Act 3 – Justice
4-06 Daumier’s Law Act 4 – Punishment
4-07 Daumier’s Law Act 5 – Payment
4-08 Daumier’s Law Act 6 – Release
Six pieces of very un-McCartney like music, recorded by Paul in his own studio at The Mill, in December 1988. “I wanted to get into some minimalist music”, Paul explained to Mark Lewisohn in Club Sandwich 62. “So I came to the studio and started trying to think of very simple-pieces, based around the theme of injustice. I’d read an article about minimalist music and the idea that sometimes people use too many notes. There’s that joke in Amadeus where the king is asked what he thinks of a piece of music and he says ‘Too many notes’ – the article was saying that this is often true, so I got intrigued with the idea of thinking ‘How few notes could I use, then?’ You start off thinking of just one note, you hit C on the piano, but one’s natural feelings lead one to think that that’s too little, so you embellish it a bit here and a bit there, trying to keep in the back of your mind that this is supposed to be as minimal as you can
get. And in the end I think I abandoned the idea of minimalism and just got into this slightly experimental music.”

Around this same time Linda was experiencing a re-discovery of a college interest in the works of the 19th century artist Honoré Daumier. “As an art history major, both at Vermont College and the University of Arizona, I saw, supposedly, every great visual,” Linda explained. “I went through all periods of different painters and along the way there were several that really grabbed me – Daumier being one of them. He was very satirical about the different classes and fantastic at capturing people’s characters.” The two projects – the art and the music – suddenly came together. “I went through every drawing he ever did and really got involved,” Linda said. “I got every book on Daumier and read all about his life and thought that it would be incredible to do a visual thing for Paul’s music. Daumier worked for a newspaper as a satirical cartoonist, as well as being an amazing painter, and went to prison a few times for his Art. A lot of his work was about injustice and it’s a theme that is so right for our times, still.” “I did about 20 minutes of music,” adds Paul, “then Linda and I were looking at some Daumier drawings and getting very into him, so we hooked up the idea of injustice with my music pieces, came up with the basis for the film and got in touch with Geoff.” That’s Geoff Dunbar – the man who also made “Rupert And The Frog Song” animated movie. When it was decided to use Paul’s experimental music as the soundtrack, McCartney held some further sessions between 18th & 24th December 1989.

“Paul did six pieces of music and they each had a title – Right, Wrong, Justice, Punishment, Payment and Release”, Dunbar explained. “He was inspired. And then we pored through the works of the great man, got everything that was available and structured the story from the material. And where we had to link it we invented ‘in the style of. We’ve hung the story on one character, a man from one drawing by Daumier. It’s rather ambiguous because in the drawing you can’t see his face but the figure is there, and we made him this Average Guy, an Everyman.” A private screening of the completed production, called “Daumier’s Law”, took place in London in April 1992, followed by an official unveiling at the Cannes Film Festival a month later.

4-09 Motor Of Love [demo]
A studio demo for the “Flowers In The Dirt” song. Probably recorded in Scotland in Summer 1988.

4-10 We Got Married [rough mix]
Rough mix of the original version, produced by David Foster, in September 1984.

4-11 Figure Of Eight [rough mix]
The complete, unedited album version, recorded in December 1987. This was cut by almost one and a half minutes for “Flowers in the Dirt”.

4-12 Peacocks [later mix]
This is a remix with additional production, including more drums and more of Linda’s peacock imitations.

4-13 This One [new version]
This was recorded in late April ’89 and taken straight from the ‘Put It There’ laserdisc. It has been labelled ‘New Version’ to make it consistent with the ‘New Version’ of Rough Ride, which was also taken from these same sessions. A live-in-the-studio recording.

4-14 Hope Of Deliverance [instrumental]
The backing track, recorded in December 1991, as released in September 1992 on the In-House EPK from MPL.

4-15 Is It Raining In London [recording sequence]
Co-written by Paul and Hamish Stuart and recorded at Abbey Road Studios. On December 15, 1992 an orchestra was added in an arrangement by Angelo Badalamenti. The song remains unissued, as “the recording is only 80% complete, with the definitive lead vocal from Hamish Stuart still to be added”. Parts of the session were caught on camera and can be found in the MPL documentary “Movin’ On”.

4-16 No Other Baby [soundcheck 15.11.93]
This cover version of a song written by Dick Bishop and Bob Watson in the fifties, was recorded during the soundcheck at the Tokyo Dome, on November 15, 1993 – six years before Paul would record the song for Run Devil Run.

4-17 One After 909 [live 23.03.95]
4-18 Mistress And Maid [live 23.03.95]
4-19 For No One [live 23.03.95]
4-20 Eleanor Rigby [live 23.03.95]
4-21 Yesterday [live 23.03.95]
4-22 Lady Madonna [live 23.03.95]
An evening with Paul McCartney and Friends – a benefit for the Royal College of Music – was held at the St James’s Palace, London on Thursday March 23, 1995. Among the 300 invited guests was Prince Charles. First ‘A Leaf’, a piano composition by Paul, is performed by a young Russian piano player, Anya Alexeyev. Then some classical songs are performed by the baritone Willard White, accompanied by Michael Pollock on piano. One of those songs is from Paul’s
Liverpool Oratorio. Mezzo soprano Sally Burgess also performs two songs from that Oratorio, in addition to two other songs. Elvis Costello is accompanied by The Brodsky Quartet for two of his own songs: ‘I Only Had a Weakness’ and ‘The Birds Will Be Singing’. Then it’s time for Paul to perform. Together with Elvis, he sings acoustic versions of ‘The One After 909’ and ‘Mistress and Maid’. Then, with The Brodsky Quartet: ‘For No One’, ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and ‘Yesterday’. Prince Charles presents Paul the RCM Fellowship Award, “for all that he has done for music this century” and the evening is closed with Paul singing a final song with The Brodsky Quartet: ‘Lady Madonna’.

4-23 Stella May Day
Stella studied Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in the early 1990s. Her graduation collection was modelled by friends and supermodels Naomi Campbell, Yasmin Le Bon and Kate Moss – for free – at the graduation runway show, on May 1, 1995. The collection was shown to a song penned by her famous father, called ‘Stella May Day’. It’s not so much a song as a compilation of a heavy metal power chord played on a fuzzy guitar. Paul would recycle the melody later in the Oobu Joobu radio series.

4-24 The Ballad Of The Skeletons [live 16.10.95]
Allen Ginsberg, accompanied by Paul on guitar, recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on October 16, 1995.

Disc 5

5-01 Your School
In November 1990, demos were recorded for the new album “Off The Ground”. ‘Your School’ may come from these sessions. This number remains uncompleted and unreleased (although it was heard on Oobu Joobu in 1995).

5-02 Piano And Whistling Instrumental
5-03 Flaming Pie [piano]
5-04 Calico Skies [acoustic guitar]
5-05 The World Tonight [electric guitar]
5-06 If You Wanna [electric guitar]
5-07 Young Boy [acoustic guitar]
5-08 Heaven On A Sunday [electric piano]
5-09 Beautiful Night [piano]
All come from the second EPK for “Flaming Pie”. The piano instrumental is presented as is, but with the “demo” versions of the released tracks, most had voiceovers at one point or another during each tune. For each song, the music itself was in mono on one channel while the voiceover was in the other channel. Whenever the voiceover would start, the music volume would drop significantly. So for these tracks only the “music” channel has been used and the volume level has been raised whenever it dipped due to the voiceover. All of the “crosstalk” couldn’t be completely eliminated.

5-10 Bishopsgate [live 17.05.97]
On May 17 1997, Paul was in London’s Bishopsgate Memorial Hall, to answer some of the more than 2 million questions that were proposed via the internet. A hundred guests were invited to this event, that was transmitted live by Rock Channel VH1 as “McCartney’s Town Hall Meeting”. A nice surprise was this improvised little tune he performed on an acoustic guitar with audience participation.

5-11 Young Boy [live 20.11.97]
5-12 Lady Madonna [live 20.11.97]
5-13 Flaming Pie [live 20.11.97]
On November 24, 1997 Paul was the central guest on the Oprah Winfrey show to promote his new album. When the show was recorded four days earlier at the Manhattan Center, NYC he was not accompanied by a band but used pre-recorded tracks for all backing instruments and backing vocals. This enabled him to sing and play guitar live with the backing, shown behind him on three video screens. While both ‘Young Boy’ and ‘Flaming Pie’ are performed this way, ‘Lady Madonna’ is just a “little something” on his “very own piano”. Paul’s vocal (and perhaps acoustic guitar on Young Boy + piano on Flaming Pie) were live and just added to the pre-recorded backing.

5-14 When The Wind Is Blowing [rehearsal 02.12.99]
5-15 Your Loving Flame [live 02.12.99]
5-16 A Song To Us [live 02.12.99]
5-17 Suicide [live 02.12.99]
On Sunday December 5, 1999 “Parkinson” was transmitted on BBC 1 TV. The show was taped three days earlier and started with a full band performance of ‘Honey Hush’. Paul then talked to host Michael Parkinson. While being interviewed he illustrated some things by playing on an acoustic guitar: ‘Twenty Flight Rock’ (“a little bit, just to show you what got me in the Beatles”), ‘When The Wind Is Blowing’ (an instrumental written at the time when daughter Mary was born) and ‘Yesterday’. He then moved over to a piano to play solo versions of ‘The Long And Winding Road’, and two new songs written recently in New York. David Gilmour joined him for a brief guitar solo on ‘Your Loving Flame’. The second song starts with the line “Mist at Central park is clearing up” and remains unreleased. Paul ends with a bit of ‘Suicide’. But the show isn’t over yet: there’s a video of the Loma Mar String Quartet bringing ‘My Love’ and after announcing the planned Cavern concert, he joined the band to play ‘All Shook Up’. Track 14 was from the rehearsal and not the transmitted performance. Tracks 15-17 were from the broadcast.

5-18 The Lovely Linda [Wingspan version]
5-19 That Would Be Something [Wingspan version]
5-20 3 Legs [Wingspan version]
5-21 Picasso’s Last Words (Drink To Me) [Wingspan Version]
5-22 Let Me Roll It [Wingspan Version]
5-23 Mrs. Vandebilt [Wingspan Version]
Tracks 18, 21, 22 & 23 were taken from the Wingspan DVD. To promote the “Wingspan” compilation MPL presented a radio special to be transmitted over Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-27, 2001). Apart from discussing subjects like “What it was like not being a Beatle any longer” and “Wings outselling the Beatles”, Paul also recorded some new versions of favourites on acoustic guitar, specifically for this radio show. The show was pressed on a promo CD called “Wingspan: Memorial Day Weekend Special”.

5-24 From A Lover To A Friend [instrumental]
The original backing track, recorded on February 27, 2001 with Paul playing bass and piano, Abe Laboriel, Jr. playing drums, Rusty Anderson on 12-string electric guitar, and Gabe Dixon on piano.

5-25 Jerk Of All Jerks [live 14.06.01]
Paul reads one of his poems, at the Landmine Benefit Gala, in the Beverly Wiltshire Hotel, California, on June 14, 2001.

5-26 From A Lover To A Friend [live 20.10.01]
Recorded live on October 20, 2001, during “The Concert For New York City”, in Madison Square Garden, New York.

5-27 Her Majesty [live 03.06.02]
When Paul was invited to play at Buckingham Palace for the “Party at the Palace” on June 3, 2002, he couldn’t let the opportunity pass to play this little tune in front of the British queen.

5-28 Waiting For Your Train [2002 soundcheck]
On November 26, 2002, Paul released a double CD and DVD set called “Back In The U.S.” that contained many highlights from his spring 2002 Driving U.S.A. tour. As an innovative bonus for the time, the DVD contained access, via an embedded link on the disc, to a ‘secret website’. The website is termed ‘secret’ because it was designed to only be accessible with the DVD loaded onto your computer. The website contained plenty of rare video footage of Paul backstage with his band and stage crew and also a good selection of performances recorded during sound checks on the tour between April and mid-May 2002. There are even a few jingles Paul put together and performed during sound checks to use for the
website. One of these is a ballad called “Waiting For Your Train To Get In”, which has never made it on any other official release. Paul plays piano on the track with the rest of his band.

5-29 Really Love You [Twin Freaks instrumental]
5-30 Long Haired Lady [Twin Freaks instrumental]
5-31 Rinse The Raindrops [Twin Freaks instrumental]
5-32 Darkroom [Twin Freaks instrumental]

5-34 What’s That You’re Doing [Twin Freaks Instrumental]
5-35 Lalula [Twin Freaks Instrumental]
5-36 Maybe I’m Amazed [Twin Freaks Instrumental]

The instrumental versions of most of the “Twin Freaks” tracks were uploaded to an online music store by mistake. They have been credited as coming from a Mark Haefeli production acetate. Mark Haefeli directed “Red Square” and “The Space Within Us”. Mumbo was also included among these tracks.

Disc 6

6-01 Band On The Run [BBC Radio 2]
On March 7, 2003, Paul recorded a new version of the opening motif of Band On The Run’s third movement for the BBC using wine glasses and backwards piano for some of the sounds. The piece received the subtitle ‘A Different Perspective’ and was used for both radio and television advertisements to promote BBC Radio 2. An edit of this version was released on the DVD that accompanied the 2010 remaster of Band On The Run as a music bed to the “Wings In Lagos” footage.

6-02 Ever Present Past [acoustic]
6-03 Vintage Clothes [acoustic]
6-04 That Was Me [acoustic]
6-05 Feet In The Clouds [acoustic]
On October 31, 2007 some “Now Play It” video’s appeared on Paul’s website, with tutorials how to play some of the songs from his new album.

6-06 Meat Free Monday [demo]
Launched by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney in July 2009, Meat Free Monday is a not-for-profit campaign which aims to raise awareness of the detrimental environmental impact of eating meat, and to encourage people to help slow climate change, preserve precious natural resources and improve their health by having at least one meat free day each week. To promote the cause, Paul wrote a song and put a video of him playing it on acoustic guitar on the website. When the website was redesigned in December of that year, Paul made his ‘Meat Free Monday’ song available for download. He therefore completed the whole song with additional lyrics and fleshed out the track with drum, bass, piano and electric guitar! The complete version is on “New : Ultimate Archive Collection”, CD 2 Track 2. This is the demo version.

6-07 Heart Of The Country [basic take]
6-08 Heart Of The Country [final version]
Paul recorded a new version to accompany a TV advert for Linda’s Frozen Food Campaign. The commercial, which was screened on British television starting January 28, 2012, has come out of a collaboration between McCartney and the producer Mark Ronson. The ad was created by a team that has worked on animated projects for The Beatles and Gorillaz and features Linda walking her children to a woodland feast. Elvis Costello was the narrator.
