Song facts

Night Out – studio-based experiment (or just call it a jam), with Paul shouting ‘night out’ repeatedly. Taped sometime in 1972, in the Abbey Road Studios, and at one point seen as the opening track for the double album version of during Red Rose Speedway. Overdubbed multiple times by different incarnations of Wings for the Cold Cuts compilations. This is the original mix from 1972.
