Songs recorded


On this day, two days after the launch party for “Wild Life”, the press was invited to listen to the first album by Wings, “Wild Life“, to be released on December 7, 1971. The listening session was held in the control room of Studio Two at EMI Studios in Abbey Road.

Paul McCartney was interviewed by Chris Charlesworth, and the interview – more focused on The Beatles than on Wings – was issued in the November 20 edition of Melody Maker.

Mike Hennessey interviewed Wings and published a 2-parts article in Record Mirror. The first part was a track-by-track review of “Wild Life” and was issued in the November 20 edition of Record Mirror. The second part, an interview of Paul, was released two weeks after, on December 4, 1971.

Once the press left Abbey Road, time was spent mixing “Get On The Right Thing” and “Little Woman Love”, two leftovers from the “RAM” sessions.

There will also be a demand for a single – and Paul won’t take it from the [“Wild Life”] album because he doesn’t think that’s fair on the public.

“We’ll do something else – in fact we’ve got the tapes of one here which we’re thinking of mixing after you’ve gone.” (They did, too, until 4 a.m.)
