On an album that is pretty laid back and lacking in real up-tempo numbers, ‘BML’ has always been an album highlight for me – and a favourite out of all of Paul’s catalogue. The lead vocal is outstanding (Paul letting his vocal go is often a fabulous listen) and it’s great to hear this variation of Wings let go and rock out. The sound of the keyboard keys being pressed is a joy as well.

 

 

Note: Looking at the date, I cannot believe that this and ‘WATSOS’ was remastered 8 years ago. Fell like banging my head off at how slow the Archive series is going.

The outtake with Bonzo on the remaster is great too. Listened to this last night actually, and I think Linda’s vocals add a lot to the song as well. As far as the album lacking uptempo numbers you have a point, but the big hit Silly Love songs is about as up tempo as it gets.

Beware My Love shows that Wings wasn’t just some alibi pastime for Paul McCartney , but one of the best bands of the 70s. Such a great rock hymn, featuring one of his best vocal performances and getting the max from guitars, drums and bass. Wonderful intro structure to create tension until the song reaches his impressive final form. Probably my favourite Wings song together with Nineteen-Hundred and Eighty-Five.

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

It is one of my favourite songs in Paul’s back catalogue.

Back in the day, when I was a youngster, I would really appreciate it when Paul would put out a rocker.  Even so, the guitars were a bit subdued volume-wise on the track, so it wasn’t a full out blaster.  But nice to hear some distortion.

Re:  Linda’s vocals:  Don’t they always?

Silly Love Songs has that fascinating uptempo bass line, but it has some slow parts too, with that “I love you” and “How can I tell you about my loved one” bits.  That bass line seems very original though, I’m not sure how I would classify it.  Is it rock?  Is it funky?  I’ve never heard anything quite like it.

Its definitely a funky bassline, has a been of disco flavor as well. Overall its captures the feel of late 70s pop quite well.

I wonder if this song is about Allan Klein

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