A new McCartney/Wings compilation?

Postby Awesoman » Sun Jan 13, 2013 12:43 am

MusicTAP is reporting a new McCartney/Wings compilation titled Maybe I'm Amazed coming from Hear Music. No clue as to what will be included on it. Although "Maybe I'm Amazed" (perhaps the live version) is a good bet. :-)

Interesting -

I'd guess they'll include 1 (and only 1) previously unreleased track-
my bet is on Waterspout

As far as other tracks -

A few great candidates-
-Letting Go (single mix) - never released on CD
-a good remix of Junior's Farm (remember Wingspan included short version - we haven't had a solid CD version of the long version since All the Best)
-Girls' School - again, do a solid remix job on it
-Got To Get You Into My Life from Kampuchea concert
-Give Ireland Back To the Irish - just to get it on a compilation finally

If I were to put together a full CD Length Wings compilation- (with justification for each song)

1. Hi, Hi, Hi
Since its a non-LP track and it will be a while before Wild Life or RRS come out, let's get a remastered version of this out now.
2. Best Friend
New track #1
3. Live and Let Die
Ditto - it would be great to have this remixed
4. Some People Never Know
Assuming we want 1 track per Wings album (at least), since Tomorrow was already on Wingspan...
5. Little Lamb Dragonfly
If any track desperately needed a remix with modern technology to highlight how truly gorgeous it is, its this
6. 1985
Everything else on BOTR came out on Wingspan - especially since Paul's been playing this live of late.
7. Junior's Farm
Get a remastered or even better remixed version out - the last master of the full JF was on All the Best in 1987!!!
8. Letting Go (single mix)
The much superior single mix needs to be released!
9. Beware My Love
Another fantastic candidate for remaster.
10. Girls School
Ditto.
11. I've Had Enough
I'd love to hear some London Town tracks since its the one album w/the worst CD release history quality-wise.
12. Waterspout
New track #2
13. Getting Closer
14. So Glad To See You Here
In the latter's case, maybe the clean Rockestra version w/out the "we're open tonight" reprise tacked on, which sort of ruins the track.
15. Got To Get You Into My Life (from Kampuchea concert)
16. Coming Up (live at Glasgow)
17. Maybe I'm Amazed (live)

Note I'd sub Old Siam Sir for Getting Closer and maybe
Deliver Your Children for I've Had Enough - depends on how many royalties Paul wants Denny to get lol

another compilation.??

w/(probably) pretty much the same stuff..?!?!

kinda reminds of his set lists !

makes sense !!

would have to be significantly different takes for me to get too excited...that or 'cold cuts' w/ MIA added to attract attention of the doofusses who don't get it

so far, neither amazon nor hear music have anything listed on their sites...

two words...NEW ALBUM INSTEAD

okay...that's 3...but he never listens to me anyway

Could this be an error? .....Maybe they meant "Wings Over America" from which "Maybe I'm Amazed" was the single. I just can't imagine another compilation release around the same time as the next remaster deluxe/ or new studio album is due!!

After some thought I'm guessing it will be a single CD "sampler" from WOA since a triple lp/double cd may be a harder sell.

Or... maybe its full of alternate live takes from the '76 shows? I'd be OK w/that.
