        Gotta' hand it to ya'...it's perfect. The tracks' sequencing couldn't be better.

        I'll just pretend that "I Can't Imagine," "Long Leather Coat" and "Style Style" aren't sorely missed.

          Thank you buddy

          Try ripping this CD at home for yourself folks - chances are you will appreciate it for what it truly is: PURE McCARTNEY CLASS

            Back in the '90s, I'd made a cassette similar to this because, in addition to having the album, I bought all the CD-singles and was blown away by how great ALL the B-sides were.

              I still use cassettes occasionally! I have a Nakamichi and a high end SonyWalkman

              Maybe I should make myself a 100-minute tape, that would include everything.
              I would probably add Style Style and Long Leather Coat after Keep Coming Back To Love, and I Can't Imagine after Peace In The Neighbourhood

                If you can get your hands on "Is It Raining In London," add that one for sure!

                That song has become The Holy Grail for me. Determined to hear that track in its entirety.

                    Yep! But I guess we will have to wait a few more decades until it comes out on the 'Archive Collection'

                        Just realized -- still have yet to hear those 'Hope Of Deliverance" remixes.

                                    Interesting thread!
                                    I keep coming back to this album, because these sessions yielded so many great tracks. The actual release, however, suffers from too much filler, I think. Your compilation here is well enough, but too long IMHO. I worked out an LP track list some time ago that works great for me and helps me to not only come to terms with this album but to actually love it. One small problem, though: Off the Ground doesn't make it onto my album, so it may not keep its original title. But then, this could even be one of McCartney's in-jokes - not including the track but using its title ...

                                    Outtakes:
                                    Off the Ground (strong verses but the ?na na na na na na? part makes me cringe)
                                    Looking for Changes (forced rocker; trying too hard without really making it; vocals weak in places)
                                    Get out of My Way (like Looking for Changes)
                                    Winedark Open Sea (weak composition; repetitious; coda ad lib vocals uninspired and weak)
                                    Down to the River (like Winedark Open Sea)

                                      Only discovered the two disc version of this recently . Pretty hard to get in the UK .

                                      Sweet Sweet Memories is one of the best tracks . Can't believe.it didn't make it on to thd original British single disc release .
