Hoping that Cello In The Ruins gets released.
Should it be different from the version already released on the "Pipes Of Peace" reissue?
But then, without those B-side, how on earth do you flush out four bonus CDs for Flaming Pie? After all, we only got TWO contemporary outtakes across those three singles.
I have somewhere a couple of promotional radio interviews for "Flaming Pie" during which instrumental versions of several tracks from the album were played (but mostly with talk over them, unfortunately). Maybe those instrumental versions could be considered?
Blows me away on the number of comments here. I don't think this album got this much notice when it first came out.
Agreed. It is a quandry. A few elsewhere have suggested a remix or 5.1 disc.
I'm banking on a whole pie of "new" material we aren't even aware of.
Rexix or 5.1
Session B-sides and outtakes
New to us bonus material and/or some Steve Miller jams. I'm willing to bet there are some Paul/Jeff/Ringo jams too.
Perhaps there is stuff in the vaults in-known even to the die-hards. It happened before.
Flaming Pie get no notice when it was released?
It was his highest charting album in years. Old fans lost came back and new fans discovered him through discovering the Anthology. I was one of those. It was the first CD of new music I ever bought. I had just turned 11.
Regarding issuing full Oobu Joobu episodes - it would be cool if they made those available to buyers as a part of the digital download. For the CDs proper, I’m hoping they’ve uncovered more demos and outtakes than we ever knew existed.
Ops! Wrong thread!
There’s eleven outtakes I can think of:
When Winter Comes
Cello In The Ruins (War Child version with Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller)
Cello In The Ruins (Hog Hill version)
Sweet Home Country Girl
Unknown fast blues song with Steve Miller
Looking For You
3rd unknown jam song with Jeff Lynne & Ringo Starr.
What about the song Paul wrote and recorded for Linda's birthday present one year that he never released? Was that around the time of Flaming Pie?
Please no download only content
The McCartney Recording Sessions
I usually agree with you, but the Oobu Joobu full shows would be the only case to which I'll make an exception. To release them all on CD, it would take at least 10 CDs, and I think a box with 10CDs would be very unlikely (and anyway we know already that the FP box is just 5 CDs). They could put a selection of the shows in those 4 bonus CDs (inclusing unreleased outtakes, demos and soundchecks and the most interesting parts of Paul talking) but we would always have an incomplete thing; so only in this case I think the best solution would be the official download of all the full shows.
Looks like 2020 has the potential to be a massive Beatle-related release windfall. No word yet on the possibility of an All Things Must Pass 50th, but...wow.
The Flaming Pie (original album remastered) vinyl reissue would certainly need to be spread out over two LPs, considering that the total playing time is 53:46. I, for one, wouldn't buy it if issued on a single LP.
Anyway, exciting prospect. Flaming Pie is a really nice album.
So we can add at least:
Let Me Love You Always
Hey Now (What are you looking at me for?)
Dream Come True
Already makes it fifteen songs, not even counting the 1994 demos mentioned and the FP demo tape Paul gave to Jeff Lynne.
“Lynne’s participation in Flaming Pie began during early 1996, when McCartney called to tell him he’d be sending a cassette of 10 demos peformed with just an acoustic guitar. Lynne picked out three and traveled to McCartney’s home near Sussex, where he stayed in a guest house on the property and traveled to McCartney’s studio in the town each day.
At the end of the first session, Lynne says, “we’d talk about what we’d done and he’d say, ‘Fancy doing some more?’ Then he wrote a couple of new ones and said, ‘Fancy coming over to do these?’”
If Let Me Love You Always appears on the FP set than you can likely kiss a Fireman Rushes Archive goodbye.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Paul, put out a Rushes archive!!!
In discussions of London Town?Back To The Egg Archive releases, it's good to see mention of the UK 1979 tour recordings. But how about Holly Days? I know, technically it is a Denny Laine album, but no more really than Band On The Run was a Wings album, don't you know? It was short and sweet but Holly Days is high on my list of fave Fab solo recordings. Is it so obscure that it is almost forgotten? And just to take this in another direction, when will the Classical, Fireman and One Off projects be integrated into the whole of the Archives, if ever? It's all Paul, folks.
Well, in celebration of this upcoming Archive release, I know what I will be drinking this weekend:
Why wait for the weekend, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. Cheers!
Will this FP timeline be included in the book? It should be!
Will the Flaming Pie boxed set include the guitar pick that was originally hidden in the booklet of some CD copies? Here's mine:
