    Heading home from work now.

    Two vinyl LPs and a Big Barn Box are waiting for me.

    Been hard to avoid listening to all the bonus tracks on Apple Music!

    Listened to RRS when I woke up at 4am and couldn’t get back to sleep. Brought back memories of when I first discovered the album and would listen to my questionably sourced mp3s on my iPod, lying in bed at night.

    15/16 year old me cried myself to sleep once or twice listening to Little Lamb Dragonfly, pining over girls I fancied who didn’t fancy me back!

    So much has changed since then! :laugh:

    Oh wow! Very interesting!
    But it all was supposed to come out in the next few years. Now we're in 2018, the latest record is Egypt Station. So will the archive goes until then?
    A few months ago, they reissued Chaos and New on CD, vinyl and colored vinyl without bonus content, but does it means anything?

    Hi, little question if you know ... why is "little woman love" in the edition of Red Rose Speedway when we had it in Ram? Even when we have Wild Life between the two albums, thank you!

    Recorded during RAM sessions, released as a B-side to Mary Had A Little Lamb. I suppose that's their justification. But it is odd.

    Anyone have problems with the Red Rose Speedway double album redemption card?

    I know I asked yesterday already, but can somebody comment on the early mix of "Little Lamb Dragonfly"?
    I guess the intro is sung by Paul and not by Denny Laine...

    Listening to the Wild Life remaster, sounds great!

    Reading all the Big Barn Box stories, it’s silly that so many fans cannot get it. Universal definitely underestimated the demand on it......I think they would’ve made more money by selling a third Wings Live In Europe box set with the live CD and the Bruce McMouse film.

    I do too! You guys are killing me with all the talk about how good the live performances are! The live stuff is what I've been waiting for, can't wait to get my hands on it!

    Yes they were, but anyone who really paid attention knew that soft pop crooner nonsense wasn't true! All the people who actually saw Wings knew that was total insanity! The first version of Wings were a raw rocking band!

    Here's a question, you have to think that some of the critics at the time were at the shows, so after seeing Wings rocking out, how did they still get them so wrong!

    I'm with you! Wings Over Europe should have been a stand a lone set that you could purchase all on it's own?

    No, original mono soundtrack only.

    Yes, I saw a positive review here and there, but the negative was overwhelming! I will agree that McCartney didn't help matters any by keeping all of this fantastic music hid away! He could have released this as a live album back in the day! His setlist was different enough, and doesn't repeat itself like many of his later live sets do.

    I found a typo in the African Yeah Yeah liner notes. It says it was recorded in August 1972 but it was actually recorded in 1971 in Scotland. Wings were touring Europe in August 1972!

    Denny Laine has never sung the intro to LLD. It's Denny Seiwell on the regular version.

    I think it has too many ballads on it. Do agree that Little Lamb Dragonfly is the perfect closer. Night Out seems half finished, a jam with too few words. Big Barn Bed should have stayed the opener.
