I've been told (that as of now) the combined set of London Town and Back To The Egg will include a defintive 1981 version of Cold Cuts with Paul finally being able to use the Saul Steinberg artwork that he commisioned for it. So these are still coming and will hopefully see the light of day next year. I'm not sure what will happen with the 1986 Cold Cuts versions with Richard Niles and the 1987 versions when more work was done.

That's right..."Pure McCartney" could have been so much greater with an approach like yours, B.J. And it's true "Give Ireland Back to the Irish" is really rousing, gets the blood going if you've got some Irish in you especially--it's sung with so much spirit and power that I wondered why Macca had his farm in Scotland instead of Ireland. Was he avoiding the I.R.A. terrorism.
You probably have "Cold Cuts," BJ ? Even that could have included so much more. When I first heard a bunch of the B sides, rareties and never recorded on albums stuff, it was such a revelation, like the heavens opening; all that previously undiscovered Macca music which features quite a few gems and could-be famous classics like a vast musical treasure chest to be plundered endlessly and enjoyed. It proved a respite of sorts from all the much heard hits...not that "respite" is the right word; but there was so much that's "new" even while being old.
Yes, I've heard Cold Cuts but think about what Paul has in his faults. The quality of the recordings would probably be much better. Each decade Paul has an abundance of material for a 2 CD set. He initially could do a Volume 1, 5 CD Set (one for each decade starting with the 70's) . Then he could follow up a year later with a Volume 2 (again one CD for each decade).
Just looking at the 90's decade and the Off the Ground sessions, Paul actually came out with a 2 CD of songs (for Japan I believe) that didn't make the proper OTG album cut. Many of these songs are as good or better than the original Off the Ground tracks. Those songs are "finished" songs and would be prime candidates for a "Lost and Forgotten" 90's Compilation Disc. Anyway, hope Paul comes out with a Compilation Package like this for the "real" fans like us.
Check out the link in my sig below. Paul has over 300 unreleased songs, rude jams, demos, etc... it would be a massive project to get these out but I hope he does or someone does after he's gone. The world needs more McCartney music.
RE: PAUL in GQ MAGAZINE
Cool to read Paul is open to microdosing in the future. We could get a really wild McCartney III out of that.
The sex stuff shouldn't be shocking. He was world famous and the ladies were throwing themselves at him so why not as long as he was hurting anyone. At least he never did what John did to Yoko in '72 and cheat on Linda with her in the next room overhearing it all.
The frog story has been around for years also. What was he 10-12 years old? He's always felt guitly about it. Check out the Rupert and Tuesday films.
If I had a dollar for everytime Paul said the F word it would pay for his concert tickets twicefold.
I want to hear more about their transvestite story that has been rumoured about for so long.
RE: EGYPT STATION
These apparently are the twenty-four songs and instrumentals recorded for the 'Egypt Station' project. Sixteen are for the standard album, eighteen for the deluxe edition.
Opening Station / I Don't Know / Come On To Me / Happy With You / Fuh You / Who Cares / Windy Hill / Confidente / Quarters / Waking Up Slow / Back In Brazil / Hand In Hand / Dominoes (Light That Way) / Despite Repeated Warnings / People Want Peace / Closing Station / Do It Now / Hunt You Down / The Church We Never Went / Caesar Rock / Night Party / Old Bridges / Naked / C-Link.
Its now been been revealed that Get Started / Nothing For Free are the two bonus tracks on the Deluxe album, which now brings the total to 26 new recordings for the ES project.
The bolded songs above are more than likely made up titles or not connected to Egypt Station. It was reported at the recent listening parties that only 22 songs were recorded so that would give us:
01. Come On To Me
02. I Don't Know
03. Station I
04. Station II
05. Happy With You
06. People Want Peace
07. Despite Repeated Warnings
08. Fuh You
09. Back In Brazil [3-4 alternate versions exists]
11. Hunt You Down
12. Who Cares
13. Hand In Hand
14. Do It Now
18. Caesar Rock
19. Get Started
20. Nothing For Free
Plus 2 other Tedder tracks if #19 & #20 aren't those.
RE: THE NEXT DELUXE/REMASTERED ALBUM FROM PAUL
Paul promised us all the McCartney/Costello collaborations. This set is very disappointing. Their 'Veronica' demo is not even here.
There was no demo for "Veronica" with just Elvis and Paul. Elvis had it complete except for the middle 8 that Paul added. His demo of it was released on the reissue of Spike. There's also no demo of "Back On My Feet" with the two of them. We are getting all the demos that Paul and Elvis recorded back in late 1987.
RE: Only One- new song by Kanye West, featuring Paul
Can't believe Paul is using his wonderful unreleased melody from Ram for this. At least now maybe we'll get "When The Wind is Blowing" released in its original form at some point.
RE: Paul's New Album-- "New"-- CONFIRMED
No "Women Kind" from MACCA I, they just reused a lo-fi circulating demo http://wogew.blogspot.fr/2011/04/mccartney-mccartney-ii-its-official.html
To be fair though, that demo cassette was stolen from Paul in the 70's so that's the only version MPL has as well.
RE: Hey Diddle....again
They added the fiddles to the basic Ram recording in Nashville '74. I'm thrilled to get this in better quality. We'll probably see the vocal version of "Sunshine Sometime" on the BTTE set. Maybe we'll get the '86 Richard Niles orchestrated version of "Hey Diddle" on a future set as well.
RE: Politics of Love - McCartney/Peter Gabriel collaboration
The live version performed solely by Peter is "out there" in well guarded trading circles.
