I'm looking for help from the Macca experts here before I give my views on this album in another thread.

Some sources say this is an album by Wings called Wild Life.

The spine of my CD has "Wings Wild Life / Wings" which suggests it is an album by Wings called Wings Wild Life.

So, which is it?  I am leaning towards the second interpretation otherwise the 2nd Wings on the spine is redundant.

I've always considered it to be Wild Life. It certainly appeared that way in the original advertising, as you can see here:

The original album was also "stickered" in exactly the same way:

^ Interesting.  To provide further evidence for the alternative interpretation - on the Wingspan CD the track Tomorrow is listed as being off Wings Wild Life (and we know who helped put that CD together).

[EDIT] With the evidence of that poster and sticker I'm now leaning towards an album by Wings called Wild Life :)

^ Anything on the spine?

 

[EDIT]  Just saw a scan of the cassette spine and it was just Wings Wild Life which adds further weight to it being an album by Wings called Wild Life.  It looks like the later CD releases just added a superfluous 'Wings'.  So, I'm going with Ron's opinion unless Paul comes in here and tells me otherwise :)

In the latest issue of Q (as reported by Examiner) Paul says that 'Bip Bop' is his worst ever song and the lyrics are "fucking awful".

Would be good if this means Paul has went thru all the 'Wild Life' material and a reissue is coming soon (ie before the year 3771 when the remasters are currently scheduled to be completed - i wonder if the 'Archive' series will be the first reissue project in history that will lap itself when we get the 100 year anniversary archive release of 'Band On The Run' before albums like 'Give My Regards To Broad Street' and 'Off The Ground').

Its not that short an album; 'McCartney' is less and 'Ram' is only 4 minutes longer.

I know it's not, each song in itself is quite long. But if you only like side 2 then it feels quite short. a-hard-days-night-john-6 And, of course, this is the person who goes, 'What? Done already?' after Shine On You Crazy Diamond part 9. And Wish You Were Here is a pretty long album. 

As posted elsewhere I'm crazy about 'Some People Never Know', in fact I'm listening now. a-hard-days-night-john-1
