I like With a Little Luck. I like the entire album…great record. Honestly, Back to the Egg is the worst Wings album and the one I listen to least. Some great songs on there (Getting Closer, Old Siam Sir, Arrow Through Me, Spin It On) and some weak sauce. Daytime Nighttime Suffering, which was the B-side to Goodnight Tonight, is killer…both of those should've been on the album instead of non-album single!

Relistened to this on Sunday. The first two tracks are instant skippers (Café on the Left Band being the worst) and Famous Groupies is tripe but aside from that its a good album. Have always loved With A Little Luck, especially the instrumental section after it seems to be stopping, and both Children Children and Girlfriend are fabulous songs, enjoyable feel and great vocals (had no idea Jacko had a version of Girlfriend, no interest in hearing it).
Deliver The Children is such a great song, one of those buried treasures in Macca's catalogue that deserves to be unearthed.
Every time I hear I've Had Enough I always think Paul is swearing, where it actually goes "I should be worried but they say
It will pay for a bomb, oh" I always hear "it will pay. For fuck!". [I hear Paul swearing in Lend Me Your Comb so what do I know.]
Used to love Back To The Egg but over the years its lost some of the allure. I adore Love Awake and After The Ball but the other two songs on either pairing (Winter Rose and Million Miles respectively) are uninspiring.
The whole LPfeels like a forced effort to give this idea of a concept (Reception, We're Open Tonight being welcomings, So Glad To See You Here a thanks for coming, Baby's Request (like the song, love that kind of music) the soft closing number as people get their things), which never really works.
The Broadcast deserves to be appreciated. Classics Rock have a blog on the song which is got some interesting information on how the track came about and the sources for the material spoken.

I think London Town is MUCH stronger than Egg. As I said, Egg has some great tunes (Getting Closer, Old Siam Sir, Spin It On, Arrow Through Me), I really like Baby's Request, To You is ok…the rest is weak by Wings' standards.
And MMM, whether you knew it before or not, it was supposed to be a concept album just as you said…they dumped that idea at the last moment but the feel of it is still there with the songs sequenced the way they are.
