paul mccartney's the alternate red rose speedway

Posted by gregor on Thursday, April 8th, 2010

i had never even heard of mccartney’s red rose speedway until i grabbed this a few weeks ago. from what i have been reading, it seems as if people fall into one of two camps regarding this record, love or hate. i havent heard the actual record, but going by this, i cant really tell ya how i feel. some of its good, some not so good. there’s a bit more to this than what i have posted, but from what i can gather the remaining stuff is pretty close to the actual record, and really dont want to risk it. i may be wrong, of course.

    Fantastic post. One of the best sounding McCartney rarities collections I’ve heard.

  2. Nick says:

    I have a fondness for seventies Wings outtakes. This was around the time Wings were playing colleges in England and developing their songs and show. This comes out in these recordings.

    I’m one of the ones who loves it, I’m a huge Macca fan. But I hadn’t heard some of these alternative tracks and I am LOVING it. Thank you.
