[Thought of posting in another thread but didn't know which one and as we don't have a Back To The Egg thread why not create one.]

 

Currently half way thru the Back To The Egg TV Special (posted over at the Beatles Video of the Day) which is promo's for a number of tracks from the alnum of the same name and screened on BBC 1. 

The details for the special reads:

The Back To The Egg TV special was a program containing music videos from the Wings album Back To The Egg (1979). It was first broadcast on BBC1 on June 10, 1981, two years after the album had been released. Two of the videos ("Goodnight Tonight" and "Baby's Request") were released on The McCartney Years DVD boxset in 2007. However, the special in its original form has yet to be released on DVD.
Songs:
"Getting Closer"
"Baby's Request"
"Old Siam, Sir"
"Winter Rose/Love Awake"
"Spin It On"
"Again and Again and Again"
"Arrow Through Me"
"Goodnight Tonight"

This particular version has been transferred from an old video cassette tape of the UK TV screening.

It's very enjoyable, well worth watching, and of course the music is excellent (its also cute to see Paul feed a horse with sugar out of his jacket pocket).

Back To The Egg is such a good album.

Back To The Egg is a good album. It's not my favorite Wings album but it's not nearly as bad as it's been made out to be...a lot of that was down the the critical drubbing it got by people who, for whatever reason, had a hair across their arses when it came to Paul. There are some weak tracks on there but there's some great stuff, too: Getting Closer, To You, Arrow Through Me, Old Siam Sir, Spin It On, Baby's Request. Also, Paul was dead-wrong in his argument with the record company...Goodnight Tonight and Daytime Nighttime Suffering absolutely *SHOULD* have been on the album! Fantastic songs, both.

Wasn't there one where trcanberra (I think) spoke of buying some special edition through ebay and then we all made silly egg puns?

I have memories that he was going to buy the standard cd and the dealer pulled out of the sale. I would do a search but looking for back might take a bit of time to find it. Oh, wait google search deluxe edition.

The best thing about the album is this. If you can't read it

 

Dear Art Dept.

I got a test pressing from the factory of our new album but they sent two single-sided discs, so I decided to stick them together. I got my super glue out, lined the two records up and stuck them, but I got it wrong and when I tried to play it the hole in the middle didn’t fit. I tried to pull it apart but the record broke, so I ended up throwing it on the fire. After about 5 minutes of vinyl-smoke filling the room I picked it up and threw the whole thing out into the garden.

Anyway, the next day I took some photos and I thought it might be a good idea to use the burnt record as part of your advertising campaign. Let me know what you think.

All the best,

Paul McCartney

Dear Paul

We got your idea and feel we may be able to work it in somewhere, but think that our campaign says it all.
