Chaos and Creation in the Backyard

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard. Paul McCartney. 2005.

One of the better more recent McCartney offerings. Worth your time (particularly the first half).

Holly Days 2

Ads for a nearly-forgotten Paul McCartney-produced Buddy Holly covers LP by Wings mainstay Denny Laine. Paul and Linda back Denny throughout and there are plenty of odd production choices and arrangements in its half hour runtime. Good stuff if you can locate a copy. Just ignore its hideous sleeve. 1977.

McCartney New Cube

Ridiculous light-up cube that came with initial copies of Paul McCartney’s most recent LP if purchased at the FYE chain of record stores. While supplies lasted, I’m sure. 2013.

Cold Cuts (Another Early Version). Paul McCartney and Wings. 1987.

West German pressing of the oft-floated but never-realized odds and sods collection that Paul McCartney seems to have fussed over endlessly in the early 80s but never got around to actually putting out. As the parenthetical part of the title suggests, there are a number of different versions of this comp floating around. This one opens its second side with an 11 minute version of Linda’s Wide Prairie. It’s worth seeking out if that’s your thing.
