I'd shut up if Paul reissued Driving Rain if it meant the Archive collection got a bleedin' move on. At this rate John's clone's clone will have to be given the job of overseeing it as everyone else involved will be long gone.

Shame the camera's didnt go in the theatre as a) we might have seen if the audience were bored senseless and trying to maintain the live or actually liked it, and b) whether or not that included Paul (considering its not been available for years he must be aware its utter guff).

Someone posted this at maccaboard:

At the London premier when (in the film) his manager says 'We've found the tapes', Paul (in the audience) shouted out 'thank gawd for that'. Laughing

Even Paul was fed up with it all by then.

 

Haha, I'd never heard that story before. Wonder if he had a horrible sinking feeling of what a bad movie it was at the premiere... or if he knew before then and couldn't stop the train.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Relistened to this a couple of days ago and my over-riding thought to every track on the album is why? It reminds me of those horrible compilations that feature new recordings of classic songs by one or more members of the original band, either that or an artist who's made the album as some kind of tribute to Paul's work but fails miserably.

As said before the re-recordings are utterly pointless and far inferior to the originals (Here, There & Everywhere does feature a new subtle orchestral part but which adds nothing to it) and of the new tracks only NMLN is of any real quality. No Values and Not Such A Bad Boy are pure hackwork with lazy lyrics, half-hearted vocals and very average production, Eleanor's Dream could have been something with more work but ends up going nowhere slowly via a long convoluted (is that the right word?) detour, and Goodnight Princess is a nice instrumental track in the same musical vein as Honey Pie and You Gave Me The Answer but not worth shelling out for the album.

It is interesting  that the one Wings tracks Paul goes back to and modernises is Silly Love Songs which was a huge a-hard-days-night-paul-11 to his critics who were having a go at him after My Love saying his music was too soppy (Band On The Run can be heard in the film but its the Wings recording).

And going back to NMLN, on the album the ballad is sandwiched between movie dialogue and sound effects whilst the playout version is longer but not in a good way as it feels its been stretched out to fill in time rather than offer anything to the mix included as the single b-side. If you want NMLN (and it is such a good song with a cracking Dave Gilmour solo at the end of the ballad version and some excellent singing by Paul on both) get Wingspan which includes both the single versions and a whole load of songs you will listen to (better to have a good song twice than a crap one at all).

 

Overall its best to avoid this. I will be from now on.
