We're talking about nearly 70 tracks made available for the first time ever!!!!

PLUS : For the first time a complete version on the Rooock show on 2 DVDs.

A few highlights for your consideration include a take of "Silly Love Songs" in which McCartney scats what will be the horn part; a 1980 Wings version of "No Values," later re-recorded for the "Give My Regards to Broad Street" movie; and an early version of Wings' "Must Do Something About It" with McCartney handling the vocal rather than drummer Joe English, who ended up singing it.

It is an unprecedented flood of unauthorized material — and you all have it first hand for the first time ever!
The fact that these tracks showed up to us the day after it had been announced that McCartney had signed a deal with Concord Music to begin
putting out remastered reissues of his album catalog with bonus tracks appeared to be no coincidence.
One rumor had a disgruntled member of the project's team sending out the tracks in protest of the box being put on the back burner by the new Concord deal. Fans also speculated that some of the tracks (mainly the rehearsals from Wings' 1976-76 tour) were from cassettes auctioned in 1998 that had belonged to the late Trevor Jones, the band's original roadie.
The rumours are that the tracks were going to be used in a new MACCA BOX of rarities to be released later next year but were rejected.
Below, goes the tracklist for your amusement :


Let 'Em In (1975 Rehearsal)
The Note You Never Wrote (without strings)
She's My Baby (Take 1)
She's My Baby (version 2)
Beware My Love (Instrumental, complete acetate version)
Beware My Love (rough mix)
Wino Junko (rough mix)
Silly Love Songs (without strings or horns)
Time To Hide (instrumental)
Must Do Something About It (Paul on vocal)
Beware My Love (Instrumental incomplete)
Must Do Something About It (remastered)
Let 'Em In (Mono Promo 45 Edit)
Let 'Em In (Stereo Promo 45 Edit)
Richard Cory (studio 1975)
Soily (studio 1974)
Junior's Farm (Ernie Winfrey Mix #1 - early mix)
Sally G (Ernie Winfrey Mix - early mix)
Junior's Farm (Ernie Winfrey Mix #2 - early mix)

These tracks date from the January-February 1976 Wings At The Speed Of Sound sessions, unless noted. All remastered (not by Workmans Shop)
and have nice stereo seperation!



From the Trevor Jones Collection - 2 cds worth of rehearsals over 3 days in September, 1975.
01 Little Woman Love / C Moon
02 You Gave Me The Answer
03 Live And Let Die (Part 2 working Session)
These tracks date from the early September 1975 Elstree Film Studio rehearsals for the Wings UK tour later that month. There are three cassettes
in the Trevor Jones collection from this era, named "1975 Tour Setlist," "Tour Rehearsal 1975," and "Day 2 Elstree, 1975." It's hard to tell
which tracks are sourced from which, but it does seem (through the track labeling as well as the sonic quality) that there are 3 different
sources for these tracks. This one is "Tour Rehearsal 1975."

04 Junior's Farm (Version 1)
05 Junior's Farm (Version 2)
06 Let Em In (Take 1)
07 Little Woman Love / C Moon
08 Old Man River
09 Soily
10 Stealin
11 Suicide
More Elstree rehearsals. Since Soily and Junior's Farm are more developed thus this may be "Day 2 Elstree 1975." Let 'Em In was a runthrough with the band.

12 Venus and Mars Rock Show Jet
13 Let Me Roll It
14 Spirits of Ancient Egypt
15 Lady Madonna
16 The Long and Winding Road
17 Picasso Last Words / Richard Cory
18 Bluebird
19 Ive Just Seen A Face
20 Blackbird
21 Yesterday
22 You Gave Me The Answer
23 Magneto And Titanium Man
24 Medicine Jar
25 Go Now
26 Letting Go
27 Live And Let Die
28 Call Me Back Again (Incomplete)
29 My Love
30 Listen To What The Man Said
31 Band on the Run
32 Hi Hi Hi
33 Soily
The balance - and these sound more polished!

More songs, sessions and outatkes spanning 1971-1987 plus a few bonus tracks that are newer finds!


01. Another Day
02. Hi Hi Hi
Both of these are taken from acetates.

03 Mull Of Kintyre (count-in)
04 Deliver Your Children (Paul Mix)
Recorded in August 1977.

05 Did We Meet Somewhere Before
From early 1978, not too different from what's been bootlegged before, although it might be a little cleaner than what's previously circulated.

06 Reception (Long Version)
07 Cage (Instrumental Backing Track)
08 Getting Closer (Instrumental Backing Track)
09 Rockestra Theme So Glad To See You Here (Instrumentals)
These Back To The Egg outtakes could be sourced from the early 1979 rough assembly cassette Madinger and Easter mention. The track numbers given also
hint that there may be more from this cassette yet to come.

10 Daytime Nighttime Suffering (early version)
Dates from January-February 1979.

11 Fabulous / Teddy Bear
12 Momma's Little Girl (Intro)
13 Momma's Little Girl
14 Take It Away
15 No Values
16 Denny's Song
These are also likely from a "Wings Rehearsal 1980" cassette. These all seem to be from Pugins Hall in Kent (the site of the aforementioned
When It Rains It Pours boot), and seem to be rehearsals in earnest for a Wings album that never came to fruition. Take It Away has been dated
as October 1980, while No Values is from November 7, 1980.

17 Waterspout
18 A Love For You
Rough mixes from the overdub sessions in late 1980 for Cold Cuts unreleased LP.


01 Take It Away (monitor mix)
02 What's That You're Doing (rough take)
03 Newt Rack (instrumental)
04. Ebony & Ivory
From the Tug Of War sessions at Air Studios in London and Montserrat in March 1981. New tRack was recorded on March 11, 1981 with an appropriately
whimsical throwaway title (get it, New tRack?) Stevie Wonder on #4 - not from Trevor Horn Tapes, but a rehearsal session.

05 Martha My Dear Instrumental
Made for the Give My Regards to Broad Street movie - however unused in the "medley" with mii orchestra players.

06 Choba Medley (Part 1)
07 Choba Medley (Part 2)
These two tracks contain excerpts from all the tracks recorded in the July 1987 sessions. This includes interesting but frustratingly incomplete snippets
from the unreleased versions of "Cut Across Shorty," "No Other Baby," "Poor Boy," "Lend Me Your Comb" and "Take This Hammer."

08. Honorary Consul Demo #1 - 1983 demos ex quality
09. Honorary Consul Demo #2
10. Honorary Consul Demo #3
11. Yvonne - 1986 Outtake - the best quality yet!
12. Ou Est Les Soliel - 1988 Demo
13. Party Party - 1989 (Forest DJ Only Mix)
14. Hello Picadilly - 1973 Radio Jungle by Wings
15. Baby Face - 1974 - from One Hand Clapping Sessions
16. You Gave Me The answer - instrumental backing
17. Runaway - written by Paul, recorded in 1982 by Ivory


The various versions of this show and how we edited them together :

Version 1

The most common version is one that most everyone seems to have which is the bootlegged DVD of this show.
Here is a screen shot of one of the menus (there are others).

This is an OK version of the show, which sounds good, but the picture is very dark.
I really don't like this version very much.

It's also missing these songs from the original concert.
"Call Me Back Again"
"Lady Madonna"
"The Long And Winding Road"
"Drink To Me"
"Richard Cory"
"You Gave Me The Answer"
"My Love"

Not what I'd call a complete show.

Version 2

is a direct copy of the Laserdisc.
I've made it into a Full Bit 2 DVD set.
I did a little bit of monkeying around with the video enhancher to get it to look a little brighter and the color more balanced.

I like this version much better than Version 1.

But the Laserdisc is also missing some songs.
"Call Me Back Again"
"Lady Madonna"
"The Long And Winding Road"
"My Love"
"Drink To Me"
"Richard Cory"

These missing songs are disappointing since this is a pretty good version of this concert. I filled in the missing songs
from Version 3 to make it a complete show.

Although it is hard to see the difference look at the screen shots and notice that it looks brighter and better
than Version 1. This is a pretty good version of the show.

Version 3

This version is from my first generation tape of VH-1's broadcast of this show from back in the 90's.
When I reviewed the tape I was surprised to see how good it looked. To me this seems to be the best version of the show
that I have found. It sounds good, is brighter, sharper, and full of natural looking color.

I've made this into a Full Bit 2 DVD set with no compression also.

This version was missing two songs "Spirits Of Ancient Egypt" & "Magneto and Titanium Man". So what I did was add those
missing songs from the Laserdisc.

The only problem with this version is the fact that there is a VH-1 "McCartney Week" logo in the bottom right of the picture.

I personally don't find that a problem since I really like the way this version looks.

I think it may be the best, most natural looking version around.
