I love how in Mr H Atom Paul half sings it and half declares it, as if he's a mad scientist: "well it HAAAS been suggested that the OOOnly difference between a MAAAN and a female…" Makes me laugh.

For my money, the best outtakes are certainly from the Ram sessions.

feature=related

What an incredible song A Love For You is! Totally should have been on the album, would have fit the mood perfectly, as well as featuring one of Paul's best ever vocal performances, crazy-sounding but effortless high notes.

Also Rode All Night, definitely one of the hardest and grittiest McCartney rockers. If he'd fine tuned it a bit, cut down the length, produced it properly and added a bassline it would have gone down as a solo-Paul Helter Skelter.

I'm also very fond of Cage, a rather wacky outtake from the Back to the Egg sessions, great riff and constantly stuck in my head.

meanmistermustard / Ben Ramon    a real treasure trove.

These will all make an interesting album one day (assuming the concept of an album survives). Love "Yvonne" and "Cage"

"Rode All Night" would take some work. Ben Ramon, sounds like a job for you!

An outtake from Wings At The Speed of Sound, Must Do Something About It with Paul singing lead.

 

From the Ram sessions Hey Diddle, a great song to sing along to.

 

 

And Same Time Next Year. This was posted earlier but the video was taken down so didnt work. I played this over and over again to the point of overkill upon discovery.

Listening to all this stuff makes me realise how INSANELY prolific Paul is. Who else could have such an enormous backlog of rare material, recorded in quality enough to be put on an album, which has never seen the light of day? 

Another outtake I love from the Ram sessions is the slow, psychedelic Sunshine Sometime.

And the hard Wings rocker from 1972 (?) Night Out.

I have looked for that version of Must Do Something About It! Thanks for posting it, mmm!

In regards to Paul releasing this stuff, there have been rumors of a huge outtake/rarities boxset coming at the end of all the remasters, which, at this rate, means right before I die of old age.

Of which it will cost a fortune and only be available as a deluxe edition with tons of stuff we all can live without.

An outtake of Mary Had A Little Lamb. This song has an easy to pick up and sing section, could replace Hey Jude.

Hahaha! You mean in concert? Fat chance of that ever happening! I know if I went to a McCartney concert for the first time, and he didn't play Hey Jude, I would be supremely disappointed!

And a 1980 rehearsal of With A Little Luck

A couple of alternate versions of Medicine Jar, one of the very best non-Macca Wings tracks and a real highlight on Venus and Mars.

mmm,

I feel about "So Bad" and "With A Little Luck" the same way you do about "Hold Me Tight." (I think rarely was a song so aptly named as "So Bad" except for perhaps "It's All Too Much" coming at the end of the too-long Yellow Submarine.)

I do like "Medicine Jar" but prefer the album version (with its harmonies) than this alternate.
