Every 5 years or so since its release, I’ve listened to it again thinking I must have missed something. Nope.

This is his only album ever on which I find no song to add to my iTunes.

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)

‘Tomorrow’ is still one of the highlights I suppose. To be honest, I have gone off the album but I do still like ‘Love Is Strange’ and ‘Some People Never Know’. Not even sure I can tell you the names of the other songs.

To mark the 50th anniversary of ‘Wild Life ‘, there will be a half-speed vinyl pressing scheduled to be released on the 4th February 2022.

 

Since there have previously been similar released for ‘Ram ‘ and ‘McCartney’ all of his albums will be issued on this format.

  

That’s my birthday!  That could be a nice turning 23 present for me.

? Friday 4th February ? 5pm GMT / 12pm ET / 9am PT  ? https://wildlife.tunecast.com/

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Does anyone else ever feel like the cover is an oblique reference to Plastic Ono Band?

Yes, I thought I remarked upon the visual similarity before in this thread but it must’ve been somewhere else. The outtake upthread is the same, especially with that gnarled looking tree. Beautiful covers both, I love that faded green.
