Found this on amazon. Its an album called Twin Freaks which are legit remixes by a DJ called Hellraiser of some of Pauls solo songs. From what the reviews say it was only released in Japan and the cover is one of Pauls artworks. 

 

1. Really Love You

2. Long Haired Lady (Reprise)

3. Rinse The Raindrops

4. Darkroom

5. Live And Let Die

6. Temporary Secretary

7. What's That You're Doing

8. Oh Woman , Oh Why

9. Mumbo

10. Lalula

11. Coming Up

12. Maybe I'm Amazed

 

From the samples available Maybe Im Amazed sounds pretty cool sped up with livelier drums, Coming Up has been mixed with Morse Moose and the Grey Goose, & Oh Woman , Oh Why is a remix with parts of Venus & Mars. No doubt the tracks would be very hit and miss; Live And Let Die is irritating and thats only after 10 seconds, sounds like the cd has stuck.

Started listening to this (only took 3 years). Not got very far in (3 tracks in total) but not too bad so far. 'Long Haired Lady' is pretty cool (has some of 'Oo You' from 'McCartney' in it) as is 'Temporary Secretary ' (which i played on the off chance, enjoyed and so went back to the start of the album). 'Really Love You' is still a piece of garbage tho its less awful than on 'Flaming Pie '; someone needs to remix the response vocals out as they are ghastly. Wouldnt turn the song into anything of any note, would just make it a bit less crap and annoying - if ever there was a song to skip in Paul's career.

Finished listening to it. 

Its far more enjoyable than i thought it would be. The worst offender is 'Let And Let Die' where after 30 seconds of Paul repeating "when you were young' you're desperate for him to complete the line; after 1 1/2 minutes you'd ready to go back into the past and finish the line yourself; after 3 minutes you'd willingly sell your left kidney and right pinkie for Paul to shut the hell up if he won't sing "and you're heart was an open book". By the time it finally stops you find you've come to believe in God just so he stops the track. Dark Room' is pretty dull and uneventful but harmless. 

Other from that its quite a fun, enjoyable ride. Great to hear parts of other tracks from Paul's catalogue thrown into the mixes and very self-pleasing to be able to get the titles.

Here is an example.

An interesting collection. The unwary can be totally confused by some of them, I didn't know what the hell was going on with Coming Up the first time. The mix of Really Love You strongly reminded me of Electric Arguments; I also thought Darkroom was lacking a little, it should have been longer and developed some of its ideas more fully. What's That You're Doing? is a fantastic hard-funk redo, a highlight for me. Some great mashups.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

I just listened to this album for the first time.  I really liked it, as a person who doesn't  normally care for remixes.  "Rinse the Raindrops" was actually better than the original(the original should have been that long).  I'm going to 100% agree with @meanmistermustard on the "Live And Let Die " track.  After about 30 seconds I was banging my head on my desk begging for Paul to finish the bloody line.... he never did.

Finally listened to this. It's definitely an interesting new interpretation of Paul's songs. The oddly effective mashups of "Long-Haired Lady"/"Oo You" and "Coming Up "/"Morse Moose and the Grey Goose" were the most memorable for me. Is "Lalula" a completely new thing or what?
