I wish john would have done a real concert tour through the whole world. It said in a documentary called lennon nyc that one was planned in 1981 but unfortunately john died much too young :(

I'm really looking forward to the reissue-remastering of wings over america. All albums in the archive collection got bonus tracks. What bonus tracks do you think will wings over america get? Or won't it get any at all because it was originally a teiple album. Time will tell. Anyway I think what really makes tripping the live fantastic great is that is the only mccartney live album that ends with Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/the end. It's a much better closing song for a concert that Sgt. Pepper/the end imo. Luckily paul plays it again on his new tou, although I think the 1990 versions were better than the new ones, mainly because the tripping the live fantastic version was performed with 3 keyboards which makes it really awesome (check out the part after the first Carry That Weight chorus)

You'd have to look up Wings' 1976 setlists and compare to see what bonus tracks would be on "Wings Over America", if any. Personally, I would think that the old 3-record set was sufficient to cover their entire set!

Maybe there are some soundchecks kicking about of otherwise unperformed songs.

Hmm, could be...

I've gotta say that the idea of expanding something that used to be a 3-record set sounds a bit excessive. (But hey, George did just that to "All Things Must Pass" in 2000 so why not, indeed?)

Wonder if Linda was allowed to perform "Cook Of The House" on that tour?

I think linda only sang cook of the house on their final uk tour. She sang seaside woman on all but their two final tours. I wonder why she didn't sing a song solo on the world tour but maybe she did in some concerts

Linda, may she rest in peace, was a HUGE liability, at least in the U.S. (and perhaps in the rest of the world outside of GB?).

She was really a running joke, which is really a shame considering that she was a classy lady without pretensions (in contradistinction to another Beatle wife.)

Common wisdom had it that her keyboard wasn't connected to anything; probably not true, but quite believable.

She could sing on key, but could hardly be considered "a voice."

Had she sung anything solo in the US, she'd have been booed; really.

As much as I can appreciate McCartney wanting to get his wife involved, and as much as that might have been great for his family life, that was probably his single greatest professional mistake.

Certainly in the beginning she wasnt any good on keyboards (i think she froze the first few times) but as time went on she improved and whilst not being amazing was certainly a decent player. She knew she wasnt great.

However Linda did sing some great songs eg Cook of the House, B-side to Sea Side, Seaside Woman, Oriental Nightfish, and her duet with Paul, I Am Your Singer, is a real highlight of Wild Life.

Give me Linda over Yoko any day.

Well Revolver is definitely my favorite Beatlle album and I would have to choose a solo album "Double Fantasy" hands down.

Paulsbass said, "Wings without Linda??? Inconceivable!!"

 

I suppose this is getting somewhat off topic, but let's face it: Paul McCartney being Paul McCartney, he could have gotten any female singer in the world to put in his band. He could have gotten a female singer with a voice that was powerful, and/or a voice that was beautiful, and/or a voice filled with emotion, and/or a voice with extraordinary range, and/or a voice that would harmonize with his particularly well.

Instead he picked the cook of the house.

He picked his wife not the cook of the house (tho i get the reference).

Linda wasnt a singer and she wasnt a musician, i doubt she even saw herself as one, and i can totally see the case for why Paul shouldnt have gone down that line. However he wanted to be with her all the time and there is something super sweet in saying "i love you, be in my band and to hell with the critics".

Its not something that bugs me at all. It never occurs to me that she made Wings less and i dont sit there grating at a bad harmony or anything she done but im not a musical individual and im usually too busy singing along. Maybe if i heard some of the early live recording my opinion would change. Linda became ok, nothing more. The only thing that has bugged me was watching her play a Band on the Run part from a 90's live performance (the section before 'if we ever get out of here) and she was showing off with one hand in the air doing the whole 'look at me' thing. It isnt a hard part to play so dont do that.

Yeah, I've never heard a Wings record that Linda's innocuous contribution definitively ruined. (Mind you, I've only heard "Cook of the House" once, so that could be one. And I'm willingly ignoring "Long-Haired Lady" since it's not Wings.)

Hi Paulsbass! Haven't seen you in a month or so...
