‘Love Awake’ is a song on Wings’ last album Back To The Egg. It is part of a medley with ‘Winter Rose’. See more…

The most anthemic song on the album, it combines a classic McCartney ballad with the antique burnish of a North of England brass band. When we cut the basic track at the castle, Paul and Denny strummed acoustics while I played a high strung guitar. This is one of the secret weapons of the studio guitar slinger’s arsenal. It’s a regular guitar, but only the top two strings are tuned normally. The bottom four are pitched one octave higher – essentially the top half of a 12-string guitar. The result is an airy harpsichord-like sonority that blends with other acoustics, adding an extra dimension and sparkle.
